China Glaze- Gothic Lolita
Maybelline- Lavender Sparks
This is my sort of gradient French tip kind of design. LOL! I started with two coats of China Glaze Gothic Lolita. Gothic Lolita is a medium purple/fuchsia with a purple shimmer. This was an odd polish. Don't get me wrong, I love the color. In the bottle it's just like I escribe. On the nail, it's a much darker purple and the shimmer is non-existent. But it's a gorgeous color.
Maybelline Lavender Sparks is a clear based polish with micro lavender glitter and small and medium round holographic glitter. It is beyond gorgeous. I did the gradient by starting in the center of my nail and brushing towards the tip. Once that was dry, I started about 3/4 of the way up my nail and brushed to the tip. The third time I just painted the very tip. Since it's a typical glitter polish it has to build up, but you don't end up with thick tips.
