EASY Glitter Gradient Nails

I used a matte topcoat on this to make it extra special. It sounds counter-intuitive but matte glitter looks so cool!

We LOVE glitter, and we LOVE nail polish!  Today’s post is a helpful hint for giving yourself a super professional looking glitter gradient manicure.  It’s so easy, you don’t even need to click through for the rest of the post!  Are you ready?  Here it is!

Use a makeup sponge.  That’s it!  Actually, any other kind of sponge will work too!  You can even cut it into smaller pieces so you get multiple uses out of one tiny sponge.

First, I paint my nails with a base color and let it dry.  Then I apply glitter polish directly to the sponge and dab it on.  To create a gradient, don’t reapply glitter to the sponge right away; just keep dabbing and moving the sponge in the direction you want it to fade.  Afterward, you can enhance the gradient effect by reappyling glitter to the sponge and concentrating on the area that should be more dense with sparkles.  It’s pretty easy, and the sponge soaks up the polish but not the glitter, so you’re not applying super thick coats that take forever to dry.

But don’t just take our word for it.  Try it for yourself, and let us know how your manicure turns out, because WE LOVE THIS STUFF!
