The Digit-al Dozen does Gradient+: Glitter Gradient

Hey there!  It's the middle of this month's Digit-al Dozen Gradient+ week.  In my quest to do different types of gradients, for today I did a glitter gradient (the cleanest of all gradient types, in my opinion).  For the + factor, I added some stamping and Swarovski crystals.  I think I ended up covering too much of my nail with glitter so I lost some of the gradient effect  but hopefully you can see what I was going for...

Since my naked nails aren't pretty at all, I started with OPI's Barre My Soul for a naked-ish base.  For the glitter, I first used a homemade glitter/clear polish mix that I made with a silver holo glitter that was crazy popular at Halloween a couple of years ago.  Then I used Essie Set In Stone (silver) and A Cut Above (pink) to complete my glitter gradient.  

For the + stamping, I used Marianne Nails 60 and Mundo de Unas White and then added a Topaz Swarovski crystal to the centre of the flowers to finish it off. 

And to end, who doesn't love glitter macros?
