Sorry about the slightly messy application… I painted my nails in the morning before going off to work on scraping paint all day, so they were mostly there for nail armor and not so much for aesthetics. I think they were chipped by lunchtime…
For this design, I used two coats of Sinful Colors Seaweed, a dupe for OPI Stranger Tides. I’ve been really liking the glitter gradients from the cuticle lately, so I cut a cosmetic sponge into a pointy/rounded shape to avoid getting glitter all over my fingers and used it to make a gradient (albeit a rather messy one) with China Glaze Ray-Diant. I was having trouble finding my preferred topcoat, so I used a coat of ORLY Sec ‘n Dry instead… I am not a fan. Fortunately, I found my good topcoat yesterday, so I won’t have to use the ORLY one when I paint my nails today.
