Glitter gradients and heart stud nails

Hey guys, happy late Friday! I've got a bunch of stuff ready to post and just haven't had any time to post it the last few days. Now that I have a few things queued up I should hopefully be better about posting more often!

Tonight I have a glitter gradient mani that I did a few weeks ago.

I did these as a quick design one night when I didn't have much time. They were super easy, but I loved wearing them so much!

The base colors are (from pointer to pinkie) China Glaze Man Hunt, China Glaze Merry Berry, Nicole by OPI Khloe Had a Little Lam-Lam, and Zoya Monica. I really love all of these colors, and I super love them together.

After my base colors were fairly dry, I did the gradient with Floss Gloss Stun just using the polish bottle brush. Then I stuck on the heart studs from Born Pretty Store using a little bit of nail glue. I finished with a couple coats of Seche Vite to make it extra shiny.

That's all for tonight! What do y'all think of these? Glitter gradients are so easy, but they are so pretty and fun to look at... definitely my nail art standby!
