Day 10–Holla to the Holo Gradient!

I have to admit that today’s manicure is a somewhat of a saved failure. I started out with Glitter Gal – Lizard Belly 3D which is a GORGEOUS dark green holo! This is just two easy breezy coats.

Here is where the trouble starts…I tried to sponge on Glitter Gal – Silver 3D, but for some reason makeup sponges just absorb Glitter Gal polishes and virtually leave no polish to transfer to the nail! Instead, I used Butter London – Dodgy Barnett which worked much better and I was able to get a slight gradient. It still wasn’t looking quite how I wanted so I threw on some black polka dots, which seemed to make this manicure less of a visual disaster.

    1. Thank you! All I do is apply my nail polish as neatly as possible and then I just use acetone and a brush to clean up the edges. Acetone is amazing for giving you a nice smooth rounded finish. Fantastic stuff! I was planning on doing a nail care tutorial soon :)
