Maybelline | Color Show Nail Polish Gilded Rose Reverse Gradient Nail Art

There has been a ton of “nudity” going on in the nail polish community this past season and although I don’t often gravitate towards nude or neutral polishes, I do require nude polishes for nail art or creating a pretty, classic look like this reverse gradient. From the Maybelline Dare to Go Nude Collection for Spring 2014, I first used two coats of Better in Buff as my base colour and then lightly dabbed on Gilded Rose starting at the base of my nail to create the reverse gradient.

Better in Buff applied easily in two coats while Gilded Rose can get chunky after awhile. The top of my bottle was pretty crusty by the end of my gradient due to me wiping excess glitter off. It is a beautiful glitter though with its gold microglitter and pink hex glitter for that extra pop of femininity.

I felt like a dainty little queen with this manicure and I think a glitter polish like this one is a very pretty way to dress up a nude polish if you’re looking for something a little extra other than a plain nude polish in your nails. This is the kind of nudity I fully support!

Reverse gradients? Yay or nay?
