In other words, this mani is work appropriate if one or more of the following apply:
a) you like being the obnoxious one at work;
b) you work in a glitter factory;
c) you're the boss lady;
d) you're so confident in your awesome nails that nothin' else matters, girl!
To execute the glitter gradient I only applied the glitter with a make-up sponge, in a couple of steps starting with the least amount of pressure to transfer just a bit of glitter over towards the middle of the nail. I find using a make-up sponge to do the whole gradient - as opposed to some ladies who use the actual polish brush to apply the glitter - actually gives you more control and lets you amp up the glitter saturation level really easily when and where you want to. Tip: Use the end of a triangular make-up sponge for more localized control.
Now this photo below is fugly but it does the best at showing the subtle stamping:
