Recreation of Illamasqua Gilded Gradient Nail Art

Hi everybody!

I've seen this Gilded Gradient Nail Art manicure by Illamasqua and I've decided to recreate it. You can see the original post and watch tutorial video HERE.

Because I don't own all the polishes from the video I had to improvise. As a base I've used two coats of Illamasqua Monogamous. Then I took a piece of sponge I wash dishes with (new one ;) to achieve the 'grainy' look. I started dabbing Illamasqua Victory (gold) to the tips and create gradient effect. The I had to find similar brown-ish colour to Faithful so I chose Barielle Cashmere Or Loose Me. Then I added a little bit of a bling instead of Swinger polish. I've used OPI Spark De Triomphe.

It is not exactly the same manicure but it's close enough I think :)







And this is the original manicure by Illamasqua:

  18. I gotta tell you, I like your version better than the original (and I did go check out the tutorial). The original is really, really plain for a glitter gradient. Yours looks a lot more elegant. :)
