Brilliantly Bewitching

 purchased by me 

I was poking around in my stash for something else entirely when Nicole by OPI Brilliant Idea was suddenly just...there.  No clue why, and I thought I'd put it away.  Sometimes good things come from a mess.

Brilliant Idea is such a wonderfully odd lemon-lime color that I couldn't resist it when I found it at Five Below last year.  It sat untried until today.  The moment I saw it, I knew just what to do.  I grabbed it and Sally Hansen Bewitching and did a glitter gradient.  Bewitching was a happy random find too, at a local flea market.  It's such a perfectly vampy purple!

Nicole by OPI bottles are so awkward to hold!  Let's see another angle...

I don't know why I don't do glitter gradients more often!

  1. Gorgeous! Brilliant Idea is a fave of mine.

  2. It looks like your nails were dipped in a potion!

  3. Ok, so I tried doing a glitter gradient and ended up just doing a glitter topcoat cuz I couldn't gradient it well. Do you have a good tutorial or YouTube video to watch? I'd look for one myself, but YouTube has so many BAD tutorials I dont want to waste my time haha

    1. Amanda linked one in a previous post and I only know this because I have obsessively watched it to figure out how to do a gradient on my stubs.
