Dipped in Glitter

I've just been doing really simple things lately. I at least wanted to try something new so I went for a glitter gradient. I'm pretty happy with the results. I think that these purples are so pretty. I wore this glitter polish alone before and I wasn't too impressed. It was super thick and goopy with a rough texture. Using it this way was so much better. Justin Bieber, you have redeemed yourself.


I started off with a few coats of Love & Beauty Orchid with Nicole by OPI One Less Lonely Glitter sponged on top. It's difficult to see but I also added a thin coat of Sephora by OPI Only Gold For Me on top of the gradient part.


I'm slowly warming up to glitter polishes. I hate the involved removal but it hasn't seemed as bad lately. What are your favourite glitter polishes? (:
