Thank you very much Laura! Smile It was my first time, so I'm hoping it isn't a one hit wonder lol

What technique do you use? I heard through Facebook that you can do a glitter gradient using a sponge. For some reason the thought of using a sponge for glitter never crossed my mind.  I did mine by brushing on layers. Maybe one or the other might help

I also do my glitter gradients with the polish brush, find it easier. I think I prefer reverse glitter gradients now.

Good to hear you and Jasmina say you use that method too.  When I heard about the sponge I was like "...have i been doing this wrong.." confused lol

I only use a sponge for plain colours, I wouldn't want to waste precious glitter on a sponge!

Hmm, they're a bit strange! I like the drippy one but I think I'd keep trying to wipe it off...!

lol I'm with you Sue! Someone else pointed out that they might not last long with hand washing etc. Having said that, it's probably just for special occasions/one offs.
I can't lie, I'm not as weirded out by it as I was at first, so it could be growing on me...

I quite like the two pointy options, but only with black polish I think - I'd want the colour to extend up from my nail not be different.

A black sharpie may last longer! Thanks Nail Luxxe, I still like to know about these things even if I'm unlikely to try them.

It's been a while since the last update! The biggest thing that's changed since then is my nail shape. I'm going for the almond look and its almost there (lol just typed: "it's almond there")

Here's the first stage of changing the shape:

I think the shape looks lovely, and the gradient is wonderful. Makes me want to have a go!
