Twinsie Tuesday: Tip Nail Art

It's Tuesday so you know what that means... Time for another Twinsie Tuesday post! This week, we're doing manis featuring nail art at the tips. There are a ton of different ways this theme could be interpreted but I (unsurprisingly) decided to go the sparkly route and do a glitter gradient! Despite my obsession with all things glittery, I've actually never tried a glitter gradient before so this was a bit of an experiment for me. But I think it turned out pretty decent!

For my base, I used Barielle Fire My Up, a bright orange creme. Then I topped it off with Lynnderella Pentimento, an insanely diverse glitterbomb made up of countless shapes and colors. I won't even attempt to list them all, but there are dozens of different glitters in here! But the overall effect reminds me a lot of party confetti.

In retrospect, I probably shouldn't have picked a glitter as abstract as Pentimento is, because it was hard to get a consistent-looking gradient going when there are so many types of glitter in just one polish. But hey, live and learn. Considering this is my very first attempt at a glitter gradient, I'm happy with how it turned out! It's not perfect, but it'll do. :)

And if you're nursing a St. Paddy's hangover, I bet looking at some more nail art will help! So stop on by my Twinsies' blogs to see what they came up with for this theme!
