Loose Glitter Gradient Nails

ImageFor last week’s nails, I used loose glitter, like the kind you can get at any craft store (pictured).  It was pretty easy.  I just did the black base first and let that dry.  Then I took a piece of paper and creased it (so you can put the leftover glitter back in the tube when you are finished) and poured some glitter on it.  I started by painting the tips of my nails with clear polish, like I was doing French tips.  Then, while that was still wet, I dipped the tips into the loose glitter so they were completely covered in glitter.  Then for the gradient part, I put clear polish on the middle part of the nail, and then sprinkled the glitter on for a more spread out look.  I finished up with a bunch of coats of top coat, so the glitter would stay on.  Throughout the week, I did occasionally have pieces of glitter come off on me, but it stayed pretty well.
