Pink Gradient Glitter Nails using China Glaze Bottoms Up and Fairy Dust

What's going on Peoples?

Do you have a go-to polish color?  Because mine seems to be pink lately, like really bright POW in yo face pankkkk!  Being Valentine's Day week I wanted to do (yet another) themed mani, but I think this one isn't all lovey dovey like.  I knew China Glaze Bottoms Up was going to be the star, so here she is!

Pink and White Gradient Nails
Now that's a pink!  This bright pink creme is Bottoms Up from China Glaze, such a glorious color.  Since it's so bright almost neon, it dries a little matte.  When I wore it on it's own, see it HERE, I used 3 coats since it is a touch patchy but nothing crazy.  I also used Friends Forever, Right a very light pink creme as a gradient transition color.

The white creme is White on White from China Glaze.  I put down 2 coats before sponging on the pink gradient.  White on White is just your basic white polish but it has a nice formula and I've been getting a lot of use out of it.

Once I was done with the gradient, which was a paint in the ass by the way!  I added one coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust over a few fingers.  Fairy Dust has a magical way of making every mani better lol  (See another mani using Fairy Dust HERE)  I finished off the look with some 2mm nail jewels from ebay.

I'm really happy with how this turned out!  Even though I didn't use anything to mask off my skin and the polish got all over and clean-up was a real bitch!  Ugggghhhh I need to get some liquid tape or something because I just can't take it anymore.  Do you use liquid tape or latex to mask off when you know you're going to make a mess?

  1. This is a very well-executed gradient! I am envious, because I can never get my gradients to look very good. Also, the rhinestones really add something extra - so girly!

    1. Thank you! Well, if it makes you feel any better they looked a little rough in person haha thank goodness for top coat it definitely blurred it a bit!
