Glittered Dark Manicure

Hey everyone! I hope you’re all having a great week so far!

I wanted to wear a color that was a little out of the ordinary, but I couldn’t narrow it down. So I went with one that shifts to several colors!

Three coats of HITS Dreamer

This is three coats of HITS Dreamer, an absolutely amazing multi-chrome nail polish that shifts from deep blue to purple to burgundy to orange. It reminds me of fire!! I love it! The formula is pretty good, but took three coats to achieve the desired look. (And, as I’ve said before, the HITS brushes from the Mari Moon series left a lot to be desired, but don’t really cause too much of an issue.)

Create the shifting effect

I wanted to add some sparkle to this without taking away from the polish itself. I wanted to add some sparkle that would mimic the shifting effect. But I didn’t have any glitter polishes that would do this.
What’s a girl to do?!

Glittery gradient effect

I decided to force some glitters to do what I needed them to do!
I used Elixir Lacquers Dakota with Funky Fingers Paparazzi and sponged them down the sides of my nails for a gradient effect, and finished with a coat of SV.

So now, when I move my hand to see the color shift, it looks like the glitter has made the shift as well!

This is actually supremely eye catching and fun to wear! I love wearing so much glitter that doesn’t take away from an amazing polish!

I hope you all enjoy!
