Flakie Gradient!

Hi Lovlies! Are you as obsessed with all the gorgeous new flakie lacquers as I am? I had a lot of fun playing around with Glam Polish Fantasia Flakies last month. One manicure in particular that I was crazy about and will likely have to recreate soon is this gradient...

For this manicure I used four Glam Polish flakie shades to create a gradient and play up the already amazing color shift of each shade. The shades transition from Comet Storm (purple) to Star Shadow (blue) to Dreamscape (green) and finally Eternity Dragon (golden copper).

Thumb: Comet Storm
Index: Comet Storm to Star Shadow
Middle: Star Shadow to Dreamscape
Ring: Dreamscape to Eternity Dragon
Pinkie: Eternity Dragon to Comet Storm

To create the gradient I simply used the polish brush to apply the two desired flakie lacquers onto half of each nail. I overlapped them in the middle to create a nice transition. The loose nature of the flakies made is super easy to get the blended effect...

I would love to know what you think of this manicure!

Thanks for looking!
