The Tri- Polish Challenge: Day 8, Turquoise- White- Orange Gradient & Multicolored Glitter

Hello everyone!

Turquoise- White- Orange Gradient & Multicolored Glitter & Matte Top Coat

I started with white nails, and wanted the tip to be orange, and the other half of the nail turquoise, and tried to make a gradient towards the white center of the nail. Then I top coated, and added one coat of multicolored glitter, and top coated again. So I'll start with photos after top coat, then with matte top coat. And after the list of what I used, photos from how it was done.

With matte top coat:

Nail polish used:

IsaDora: #967 Clear 6-in-1 (base coat)
OPI: My Boyfriend Scales Walls (white)
H&M: Bella's Choice (turquoise)
Gosh: #570 Peachy (orange)
Seche Vite: Dry Fast (top coat)
Deborah Lippmann: Happy Birthday (clear base with multicolored glitter)
Poché: Super Fast Drying (top coat)
Gosh: #600 Matt Effect Top Coat

What I did:

As you see, I used different techniques this time, but I would never have managed to make a gradient if I hadn't seen this Gradient Nails Tutorial made by The Nailasaurus. And I just saw on facebook that it has it's 1 year anniversary today, so I felt I should mention it. It has been very helpful. I am so used to use her technique that I forget to give her credit any more. But I did, the first time I made a gradient.
