BBAC 2014, Day 24: Glitter Gradient NoTW

I found some glitter gradient tutorials online, including several at <a href=“” target=“_blank”>Lucy's Stash</a> (though I tend to prefer written-with-text as opposed to video, at least I can see how things are done in the video and even take it apart to build my own pic-tutorial.) The ones I preferred were using small-particle glitter (because I don't own any large particle glitter, and didn't really want to go get any.) I did have a glitter polish - OPI's Goldeneye - but I wanted to first try with another glitter, a less expensive one. Lucky for me, Sinful Colors' holiday shades include a few small-particle glitter polishes. I grabbed the only two bottles of a gilded-pink glitter, intending to try them over a red polish.

Well…it sort of worked. I didn't get as smooth a gradient as I wanted, and I know what I did wrong. So…another learning experience. At least these results aren't quite as dire as my previous NoTWs for this year's Advent Calendar.
