Glam Glitter Gradient (Guest Nails!)

Happy Sunday! Today's post is a quick little one that shows off a manicure that I did on my friend Lauren. She was in town over Thanksgiving (home from medical school, what a smarty) and stopped by to hang out one night. We just sat around chatting while I did her nails. She picked out this design herself and I executed it! :) It was such a fun time!

The base is just a simple coat of Wet N Wild Black Creme. Gotta love dollar polishes, especially ones that work as well as Black Creme...

Then I did a glitter gradient with Milani Jewel FX in Gold. Doing a glitter gradient with a chunky hex glitter is a little more challenging in application than something like the Lorelei's Tiara gradient that I did recently, but I was really pleased with the way this turned out.

Lauren was really happy with her set of nails and said that they were really durable! Apparently there were still no chips after a few days had passed!

Also, I want to thank all of you for your birthday wishes yesterday! I loved reading all of your messages, they meant so much to me. :) I had a fantastic day.
