I applied two coats of L'Oreal's Wild Purple and then got out one of those rubbish sponge tip applicators that they insist on giving us in eyeshadow palettes. I used it to apply DS Temptation onto the tips of the nails and worked towards the base, making it lighter as I went, thus achieving a gradient effect. It's a grand and effective way to make sure the glitter polish feathers out a bit as it goes towards the middle of the nail.
This technique is easy and is a grand way to get an extra day out of your manicure if you've a bit of tip wear or chipping. DS Temptation doesn't show up true to form colour wise in photos, surprise surprise. The blue glitter is much stronger when in real life, the purple glitter stands out making it a perfect match for Wild Purple.
Do we like a bit of sparkle?
