Twinsie Tuesday: Tip Nail Art

**press sample**

Good morning everyone! It's Tuesday! Twinsie Tuesday!!!

Today's prompt was Tip Nail Art. At first I thought classic French tips with some art on them... but then I remembered, glitter gradients. I think that counts and tip nail art and it suits me (and my little nubbin nails) much better.

So here is what I came up with! More details and links to the other blogs after the jump!

For this mani I started with 2 coats of NOPI Alex By The Books on all fingers except my index finger, where I put 2 coats of OPI This Gown Needs a Crown. On my pointer finger I added 2 coats of Loaded Lacquer Mintallica. On the other fingers I worked out a glitter gradient using the polish brush. Heather's glitters are fantastic, but nearly impossible to gradient. They are so dense and flow so smoothly it's so hard to get them to work for this! But that's not a bad quality in a glitter polish. They just flow like butter, and the sparkle and squish is amazing. If you don't have any I highly suggest you get some! But, I digress. Always distracted by the glitter..... :) Once I had all of my glitter where I wanted it I topped every nail with Gelous and then 1 coat of Glossy Glam. This mani served as my St. Patrick's Day Manicure and I'm still loving it! Loaded Lacquer can be purchased via their website here.

And can we talk about how great Alex By The Books is? I REALLY need to wear it more.

So what do you think? Do you see this at tip nail art? Because I definitely do!

Be sure to check out the other Twinsie's blogs to see what they came up with this week!
