My Silver Glitter Manicure.

I tried to pull off an ombre or gradient nail look this week and I really should have looked for some tutorials before trying it on my own.

To get the look, I used one coat of Essie Ballet Slippers and two coats of an Essie silver glitter polish. The label is off the bottom of the silver glitter, so I apologize for not knowing the name. I think it might be from their Luxeffects collection. I concentrated on using the most glitter on the tip of my nails and then gently stoked the brush down. It looks more like a v than an ombre. I think I am going to try it again and use a sponge to apply the glitter.

This is so pretty. I like it and think you did great.
I like these a lot! I have been hesitant to try the sponge trick because I don't have the patience for the mess.
i want to try this manicure look. i have a very formal event coming up next weekend and this is what i think it want - better than french nail, i was going to do that with silver glitter on the tips but yours is subtle and i worried about it being too much. i am so glad i logged on today for this, thank you!!
Natalie - Thanks. I want to try again.
ChiXtina931 - I do need to try the sponge method next time. I'll blog about it, of course.
Travil - I am glad you saw this post and that it inspired your manicure. What did you end up doing?
