Double the Bubble: Pink and Blue Gradient and Glitter Combo
I'm currently in the midst of doing a bit of spring cleaning and one of the things I'm doing is clearing out my post drafts! This manicure was inspired by Jacki from Adventures In Acetone, who does a lot of beautifully paired gradient and glitter combinations. This Elevation Polish combination is one of my favorites of hers.
For my manicure, I started with the glitter polish and then worked backwards, choosing the gradient shades based on the glitter's colors.
There are three components at play here:
OPI If You Moust, You Moust - bubblegum pink
Essie Butler Please - deep cobalt blue
Polish Me Silly (formerly Lush Lacquer) Mr. Bubble - glitter shade
Unfortunately, since this is an older manicure, Mr. Bubble is no longer available for purchase. Anyone have any suggestions for similar glitter polishes? Leave your thoughts in the comments!
Even though this specific glitter polish isn't sold any more, the idea behind this manicure still stands. Grab one of your favorite glitters, and build a gradient around its colors. The glitter will add extra depth and dimension while helping to make your gradient blend appear smoother.
