NOTD - Vampy Rose Gold Glitter Gradient

Greetings my lovely readers! How are you all? Enjoying the lovely long bank holiday weekend? Find myself up & wide awake much too early than should be allowed on a Sunday, typical! But I plan on countering this with a nap later so its all good, one things for certain...I am clearly going to be SO good at being old... ;)

Today I have another glitter gradient to share with you lovelies, I absolutely love them & think its a great way for adding a hit of sparkle to your mani without going the whole hog. This time I went for a vampy burgundy base with some pale rose pink & gold glitter tips & am so happy with how it came out!


The base is VIVO's Looking Glass, a beautiful deep dark red brown, such a gorgeous vampy shade! I picked up this little beauty for just £1 whilst browsing their make-up which is exclusive to Tesco's, shame on you Tesco's, I don't know whether to love or hate you for creating such a wonderful distraction from the grocery shopping! This was two coats applied & dried to a gorgeous glossy finish...not bad at all for pound!


For the gradient I used this absolutely beautiful glitter from Essence, Time For Romance which my darling Chelle sent me, thank you doll! Time For Romance is a mixture of glitters in the prettiest mauve rose pink shade, its such a beautiful & unique colour I adore it! There are teeny tiny iridescent glitters in there as well as large pink hex glitters in a pinky jelly base, beaut!


My inner magpie was calling for a wee bit more sparkle so I obliged by adding a touch of Jordana's Funky Gold Town on the tips, one of my favorites, a most awesomely named glitter made up of big huge golden hex glitters, love!


Hope you liked the mani dolls! Thanks for reading! Are you a fan of gradients?

Lotsa love to ya!

  2. I've never tried this technique but I LOVE it! The base shade reminds me of good old Vixen by Revlon... it was the go-to colour for us grunge girls back in the day!
