I used the purple gradient kit pictured below by Beauty World to create the look. These kits come in other great colours such as red and blue too. I couldn't resist picking one up as I LOVE gradient manis but am lazy to do them =p
You get 3 colours in this purple kit - a dark purple, a purple/blue glitter suspended in a purple jelly and a clear glitter.
Instructions on the back:
Pretty simple huh? Just layer the polishes on following the instructions and add topcoat and it should look like below.
The polishes applied well and the brushes were good even though they are small bottles. Drying time was decent and I didn't have to wait too long in between coats. I don't think I did my mani very well though because it doesn't look very blended but oh well!
On another note, I found a simple online photo editor called Picnik to edit photos while I'm here. It's no Photoshop and the lighting is still yellow but I just had to tweak and watermark my photos.
Thanks for looking!
