Fall Glitter Gradient Nail Art

Tuesday, December 08, 2015
While I was doing my usual Pinterest browsing, I came across a simple, yet pretty Fall nail design with a glitter polish that looked super similar to one that I already owned. Upon further investigation, I found out that it was indeed the same polish. I tried this look out for Thanksgiving, but it is super girly and fun to show off all Fall long. I want to share how I accomplished the look with you, because not everybody knows how to do a glitter gradient.

What you will need:

1) Sinful Colors Courtney Orange
2) Sinful Colors Pumpkin Spice
3) Sinful Colors Basecoat
4) Seche Vite Topcoat
5) Many options- I used a nail art pen very similar to Hot Designs. You could use Hot Designs, regular nail polish with a nail art brush, or really anything for the black leaf detail.
6) Nail art brush (used to make the leaves). Again, you could use anything to make the leaves.

Optional:

Q-tip and nail polish remover for cleaning up polish residue on skin.

Step 1: Do your usual nail care routine and begin with clean, dry nails. Apply two coats of Sinful Colors Basecoat. This gives you that nude french nail look, but with glossy, polished shine.

Step 2: Glitter polishes often look more awesome in the bottle than on the nail. To get the most out of your polish and gradient, apply your first coat of Sinful Colors Pumpkin Spice glitter on half of the nail. To get more glitter, try dabbing motions along with your usual strokes.

Step 3: Use the same motions as Step 2, but apply the glitter about a quarter of the way down the nail.

Step 4: Use the same motions as Steps 2 and 3, but this time apply a little bit more glitter on the tips of you nails.

Step 5: Paint a leaf on your thumbs using Sinful Colors Courtney Orange, and add some detailing with the black polish of your choice. Finish up with Seche Vite Topcoat and show off those nails!

I am absolutely awful at painting leaves, but TotallyCoolNails has a great tutorial.
