The Battle Challenge: #18 Tutorial vs. Celebrity manicure


Hello my dear readers! How are you doing?
This week I got to the 18th battle of this challenge, only 2 more to go and it'll be finished. Today we're again on an inspiration battle, Tutorial vs. celebrity manicure. There was no doubt about my choice, I had to do a glitter gradient based on the tutorial by Lucy from Lucystash. To see the video of the tutorial click here.




This was simple and totally not-messy. So from now on this is the only way I'm planning to do all my glitter gradients! For this look I used two coats of Essie No More Film, from the resort collection 2012, and did my gradient using China Glaze Material girl. No need of any special tool what so ever and no need to clean up! yay!


I like how this look came out. what do you think about it? I'd love to read your comments!
Please, don't forget to check what the other participants have done to their nails to represent this battle!

    1. Gracias Andrea. El color de base es Essie No More Film, que es un violeta muy muy oscuro tirando hacia el azul.

    1. Salut Christine, you're always so sweet. The tutorial is great indeed! Can't tell you what a pain in the rear is to clean up an sponged gradient with glitter!

  8. It really did come out well! A gradient is damn hard as it is, and with glitter? I sure couldn't do it. Nicely done! :-)
