About a week ago I was scouting out the L.A. Colors nail polishes at the Dollar Tree and noticed this shimmering loose eyeshadow with brush. I thought maybe I could create a gradient look with powder instead of sponging.
This is what the brush looked like when I opened the bottle. Not the best but, hey, it was only a dollar. :)
Here is my finished look. It worked! Unfortunately, I didn't think to take pictures of each of the steps but I applied two coats of the silver metallic polish by L.A. Colors. While the second coat was still wet, I dusted the bottom half of the nails with the shimmering shadow by tapping on the brush. Next, I tapped my fingers on a piece of paper on the table to get rid of any excess shadow and applied a top coat to seal it together before stamping.
Although I was happy with how the gradient turned out, I was not so pleased with the stamping. Perfectionists are hardly ever satisfied, right? ;)
