Pink Glitter Gradient Nails

This came out of my Valentine Nails ideas. At first I wanted an ombre heart stamped but it just didn’t work for me. I tried a normal ombre and it was a disaster. Finally I tried glitter as I knew glitter and textured polishes can be a lot more forgiving when doing ombre nails. And I was happy enough with the results! However I decided to wait til after Valentine’s to post it as I figured I had enough looks for then!



You can see the white that I used underneath in parts, which I’m not a fan of, I’d probably skip it if I was to do this again as I don’t think it’s really necessary for glitter polishes. Here’s what I used

Dark Pink- Nails Inc Nail Jewellery in Princes Arcade

Light Pink- Models Own in Pink Fizz

I’m not sure if I’ll bother much with trying ombre in the future, while as I love the look, it is SUCH a bloody hassle to try get right! Pain in the arse. Maybe I’ll wait a few months before trying again!


  1. Love this!! I love both gradient nails and glitter!

    1. Thank you! Yes, ombre nails work better when done with glitter, from what I've learnt anyway! I wish I could master it with normal nails

  2. You did a good job, I've no patience with my nails so fair play:)

    1. Thank you! Must try some more looks, I certainly have enough polishes to last me forever!
