The Painted Polish shop is now open for pre-orders on all these holo glitter polishes and some new ones too as I post this. Shop now or you might miss out and you will basically regret it for the rest of your boring dull life.
Here's some nail art I made with these four babies. Now THIS is a real glitter gradient.
Can I just complain about what a drag it is for me to take pics in direct sunlight? I'll have you know that in order to photograph all four swatches and this skittle glitter mani I had to get up at 6:30am, hope to god it was a sunny day with no clouds, and had a one to one-and-a-half hour window to get all the photos done before the sun peaces out behind my building by 8:00am. Yep, there's only direct sun in my window bright and early in the morning. Evidently this took me five seperate days (one for each mani), spread out over a couple of weeks because I either was rushing to work or it was cloudy (boo, Canada). Effort = Gold star.
Note that I used a couple regular polishes as basecoats to minimize bare spaces and accentuate the glitters - see the bottom of the post for which colours. Single chevron nail vinyls were used to guide the application of the accent chevron on the pointer and ring fingers, and a make-up sponge to create the glitter gradients on my middle and thumb nail using my sponge-absorbing-jelly technique. A dotting tool allowed me to add just a couple of dots of blue glitters on my pinky nail. After I finished this mani I realized that my use of 'Holo wasted', the purple holo glitter, was limited. It was only used in the two glitter gradients. Oh well, there's always a next time, mu ha ha ha.
