SpaRitual 3/4 Gradient manicure with Illume, Knowledge and Clarity with TUTORIAL

Hello lovelies,

I've reviewed SpaRitual Illume few days ago and I've also done a 3/4 gradient manicure with it which I'll show you today.

I've applied two thick coats of SpaRitual Illume as it has a semi-jelly formula. Then I started to create the gradient effect using two SpaRitual polishes - Knowledge and Clarity. Both Knowledge and Clarity are pink glitters so are great for gradient manicures. I've done the gradient effect on 3/4 of the nails just to make it a bit different.

So what do you think? Do you prefer gradient in the first half of the nail or on 3/4 of the nail?

  12. I think its gorgeous and lovely to see the gradient fro the cuticle rather than from the tip

  13. I love gradients and you never fail at them but to me the most practical is when I start at the tip because extra layer prevents my mani. from chipping ;) ;)

  16. I didn't realise you were in the UK, it's so good to see lots of new British nail blogs appearing. I recieved my first SpaRitual polish today and I'm in love, just looking at your blog makes me want so may note. Especially Optical Illusion, you've also giving me a lemming for OPI spotted, but I can't find it anywhere. :( I love this combination, purple has always been associated with royalty, the gold just adds to that opulent elegance. I wish I had your skill!
