Shredded Glitter Gradient Tips

Happy Mani Monday!  Today I decided to do a mani that I’ve been thinking about doing for a while and just haven’t got around to it.  I was off today so I had a little extra time to sit down and focus on it.  I used two polishes from the OPI Muppets Most Wanted collection.

The base coat is a soft jelly pink named I Love Applause.  It was a little streaky and took three coats to get full opacity.  Normally when a polish requires three coats it stays tacky and takes a while for it to dry, but thankfully three coats with this polish dried pretty quickly.

The shredded glitter tips were done by using Gaining Mole-mentum.  This glitter topper has beautiful gold, rose gold, and silver shredded pieces.  There are big and small chunks throughout the polish, which made it easy to build up.

To create this look I painted my nails first with I Love Applause and let it dry for a few minutes.  For the gradient tips I put a couple of big drops of glitter onto a piece of paper then cleaned the brush of extra polish.  I then picked up chunks of glitter with the polish and placed them on the tips of my nails and built up at the edge of my nails.  Then pick up a few smaller shredded pieces and place them toward the middle of the nail to create more of a gradient look.

This look is a super fun twist on a regular glitter gradient!  I hope you enjoy this look as much as I do!  Have a good Monday!
