Hello my darlings! Another Monday, another manicure... this time a really beautiful one, I believe. :) This was my first attempt at doing a glitter-gradient manicure and I have to say I really like how it turned out. I decided to go for a nude nail polish as a base - OPI's My vampire is buff. I've been on a hunt for this nail polish for a while now (just look at my recent Pins and you'll know what I'm talking about) and I'm so happy I managed to find it - I got it on Click2Chic and it's a good thing I bought it when I did, because it seems it was the last bottle (it isn't available on their site anymore). It's just the most perfect nude nail polish that looks super flattering on the nails.
As for the glitter, I opted for gold and decided to use two different ones - Ciate's Party Shoes to about half of the nail length and Antique Brooch (also from Ciate) topped over it.
Of course the manicure is not by any means perfect - you can see that the glitter goes a bit higher up on my index finger and maybe on the thumb as well, but all in all it turned out really nice and when I wore this manicure I couldn't stop staring at my nails (I think it looked even more beautiful in person than it does on the pictures bellow). :)

♥ OPI My vampire is buff (3 thin coats)
♥ Ciate Party Shoes (smaller glitter)
♥ Ciate Antique Brooch (larger glitter)
♥ Ciate Speed Coat (top coat)
So, what are your thoughts on this manicure? Have you tried creating a glitter gradient manicure before? What kind of manicure would you like to see next? :)
