If you follow me on Instagram then you would (probably) seen this already. It's been a while since I pulled out Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Gilded lily but I didn't really want to wear it as a full manicure. In the end I settled on an accent nail and a gradient. Gradient's are probably the easiest way to wear glitter nail polishes without going completely OTT.
I started with 2 coats of Ciate My Fair lady. This is becoming one of my favourite nude nail polishes. It's funny because way back when I first got it I hated it! Thankfully I held on to it, it's perfect for my skintone. When that was dry I gradually added on Gilded lily. It's a fairly jam-packed glitter with a slightly thick clear base so I wiped the brush on the bottle a few times before dabbing it on the nail. The accent nail is 3 coats of Gilded lily on its own. I didn't bother with a topcoat seeing as it was pretty shiny anyway.
