NYE Glitter Gradient

Hey everybody, I didn't do any Christmas nail art this year, so I thought to round off the year, I'd actually do a blog post on some simple New Year's Eve nails. Honestly, these can be worn any time of the year, but since it's that time of the year, I thought I'd just call them NYE nails!

I really like glitter gradients, and I'd been seeing quite a few around on Instagram, but I don't own a lot of glitter polishes that can be used for a gradient. Then I remembered I had this very old polish from a brand called Savvy, it used to be one of my favourites when I was just getting into nail polish and nail art around three or so years ago. I'd forgotten how much I loved it till I started sponging it on. It's absolutely packed with glitters and the base is a slightly dark blue so when built up with a few coats it becomes pretty opaque on it's own or it's even better with a dark blue polish as a base.

I chose to keep it simple, using only this polish with nothing else except for a clear base coat to protect my nails and make it last longer. The part of my nail that's packed with glitter took maybe two or three coats with a sponge and some smart glitter placement to get it that covered. I love how it's turned out and I think it looks even better with my longer nails than it would if they were shorter.

That's it for tonight's post, which also makes this my last post of the year! I've ordered a bunch of new nail art supplies so I think I'm going to have a lot of fun with nail art next year and hopefully more time and motivation to do them so stay tuned for a bunch of cool stuff in 2016!

Happy New Year everyone!
