First of all, I have to say that I absolutely cannot take credit for this tutorial. I saw regretless from the Soompi forums post this in the nail thread and I just wanted to share my process and results. Regretless if you see this, thank you so much! You are such a creative and talented nail artist. :)
I apologize for the crappy photos but it was nighttime when I applied the polish. Anyway, the first step is to apply a basecoat. I used Sally Hansen Miracle Cure.
Next, apply Rimmel 606 Dazzle (gold polish) on the tips.
Then take a silver glitter polish and apply, covering part of the gold and part of the nail. I used nail art polish because it is easier to make the glitter more dense.
Next, take a looser silver glitter polish and go over the whole nail.
As a final step, I used a fine-grit gold glitter polish as a top coat but a regular clear top coat is fine.
I was really happy with my results. Regretless used this awesome Covergirl Boundless Color glitter polish that is more dimensional, but I used what I already had on hand. I might have to go out and get it and try this again with other colors!
Here's a closeup of the final result, from the false eyelash tutorial. :]
Try this out and let me know what you think! I think gradient nails is where it's at. ;)
