DIY- Winter Tips

This could be one of the worst nail tutorials that I'm every going to post... for multiple reasons. I took these pictures during exam time aka nail peeling/biting relapse time therefore my nails look a bit uncivilized.  Secondly, I fell asleep after doing my nails, hence the very apparent sheet marks on my thumb.  Lastly, I actually forgot to take pictures for the gradient silver polish. SO... here goes nothing.

You will need...
OPI- My Boyfriend Scales Walls // Gosh- Silver // Glitter Polish for Daiso // Out the Deck // Sponge// Old tag or business card

1. Paint 2-3 coats of My Boyfriend Scales Walls. I like this color because it's whiteout white but a light blue white.

2. Using a sponge, dab a bit of silver polish at the tip of the nail making sure the tip is the most dense

You can also paint a thin layer at the tip to avoid less less dabbing

3. Using a glitter polish paint over a layer of glitter where the gradient appears. This looks best with two sizes of glitter eg: fine and octagonal.  There is also an option to sprinkle loose glitter on clear polish.

4. Finish it off with your favorite top coat!
