Gradient Plus Black and White Glitter

FIRSTLY: If you saw this post before I put the pictures, I am so sorry! I meant to save it as a draft :(

I decided to do a gradient manicure topped with black and white glitter. I was going to do some nail art, but I think I'll save that for my first day of school (which is on Thursday) instead. I hadn't done a gradient in a while, but here's the result.

Pink - Nicole by OPI Selena
Purple - China Glaze Spontaneous
Blue - Maybelline Color Show Sapphire Siren
Glitter - Maybelline Color Show Polka Dots Clearly Spotted
With a topcoat of Seche Vite.

If you've read my blog you've probably seen countless complaints about China Glaze, but it totally works if that's not the only color you're using! Maybe I'll give it a chance again. :P And I really liked the glitter, there is one thick coat in the picture. It has excellent coverage and I've been looking for a black and white glitter without any bar glitter for a while, so this was perfect. The only drawback is it looks a bit pitted, even with the Seche Vite.

Here's my left hand:

And here was my first gradient ever back in January. Admittedly, I've only done one gradient in between these two. However, I think since I have a better understanding of nail polish, nail care, cleanup, and photography, it makes all the difference.
