Glitter Gradient with Avon and Julep

Monday again!  How was everyone’s weekend?
I have my 2nd attempt at a glitter gradient today and I definitely think that I am MUCH better at it this time than the first time I did it (and WOW can you believe how long my nails were?!)!

First off, I would like to apologize for the state of my cuticles/skin around the edge of my nails.  I have been slacking on the application of Pure Cuticle Oil, and I have also been picking at them 😦  I’m going to try to get them back in shape, but you will have to look at my sore cuticles for the next few posts – sorry!
For this I used Avon Aqua Fantasy as my base colour, which is my favourite Avon polish, and Julep Portia.  This is the first time I used Portia and I have to say I know what all the fuss is all about now!  I LOVE IT!  It made the mani look so mermaid-y, it’s gorgeous!  Now if only I had a scale stamping plate… 😀
I really, REALLY love how this turned out!  What do you think?  Have my glitter gradients improved??

  1. I recently did a sorta glitter gradient but my glitter was too opaque for it to be as pretty as yours. I have Portia and I love this combination, very mermaid-esque like you said 🙂
