ABC Challenge: G is for Glitter & Gradient

Hi Everyone!!  How is your Wednesday going?  I hope y'all are doing great!!  I have two posts for you today!  The first was my answer to the MABB Weekly Question, and here is the second, the ABC Challenge!!

This week is the letter G!!  And I have a Gradient using Glitter and China Glaze!!  (Did I win??  Did I use the most G's??? LOL!!) Not only that, I used two untried!!
I Used:
China Glaze- VIII (dark purple crème)
China Glaze- Atlantis
 
I can not even begin to tell you how much I love this manicure!!  First up is China Glaze VIII. An incredible, vampy, dark purple crème that stays looking purple on your nails.  So often the really dark crèmes end up looking black on your nails, but this was obviously purple.  I LOVE this polish!!  And the wear is incredible.  I'm on day 4 of wearing this and it is just now starting to wear away on the corners of my nails. 
 
Then I used China Glaze Atlantis to make the gradient.  I have seen pictures of Atlantis, heard bloggers talk about how gorgeous it is, and how it was hard to find.  I decided I had to try it.  After all, my parents and I were always obsessed with the myth of Atlantis and it glittered, so I had to possess it (my precious), LOL.  Everything you have heard about this polish is true!!  It is a aqua base with aqua and holographic micro glitter bomb!  I just can't tell y'all enough how much I love this polish!!  I'm so thrilled I finally got it. You may see it a lot!  The gradient was made by starting at my cuticle and, as I brushed down my nail, I slowly lifted the brush.
 
If you have read any of my previous blog posts, you know that I get bored with a manicure rather quickly.  I love painting my nails, so as soon as I'm done, I'm ready to start the next one.  Not with this manicure.  I've worn it for 4 days and I'm so sad that it has to come off.
 
Be sure to check out all the other fabulous ladies and their wonderful "G" manicures.  I can't wait to see what they have come up with!!  Happy Polishing!!
