Tutorial // Purple Gradient Nails

Last week I decided to paint my nails after 2 weeks of going without painting them to give them a bit of a rest. I decided to try gradient glitter nails by using one of the nail varnishes I haven't used before, OPI's Nail Lacquer in Spark De Triomphe.

OPI's Spark De Triomphe is a clear nail varnish that is jammed packed with small and large specs of gold/green coloured glitter. It's one of those nail varnishes that makes you unable to stop staring at your nails. 
The products I used were:
Sally Hansen Double Duty Base and Top Coat
Barry M Nail Paint in Berry
OPI Nail Lacquer in Spark De Triomphe
I used the Sally Hansen Base Coat, let it dry, then I applied two layers of Berry by Barry M and let it dry. I then applied a thin layer of Spark De Triomphe 3/4 of the way up, then I applied a slightly thicker layer 1/2 of the way up then I put on two layers of it to the tips. I then applied 2 layers of top coat then wa-la! You can do this with any base colour and any glitter colour. The possibilities go on and on!
