White to Purple Gradient

Today I have a gradient for you. I saw a photo of a set of of an amazing purple to white gradient. I saw it on Instagram and it turns out it’s been all over the place. I’m not sure whose photo this is, but if you know tell me so I can give credit!

Lovely gradient!

It looks like it’s been done with loose glitter and gel. I didn’t want loose glitter all over, so I tried to re-create it with a gradient. I had purchased the Finger Paints Poolside Paradise collection at Sally’s Beauty Supply and as soon as I saw the purple, I knew I was going to use it for this mani.

My gradient didn’t turn out as nicely as I wanted it to. It doesn’t look as blended as I had hoped. However, it’s still sparkly and I might try to do it again. I’ll try to not blend the purple as far into the white. Maybe it’ll just come with practice :).

I used Great White by Sally Hansen Triple Shine and Wild Bikini by Finger Paints from the Poolside Paradise collection.
