In this video, I’m going to how to show you reverse
glitter, ombre nails in several ways. So let’s dive right in. Hey guys, it’s Clarice,
welcome back to my channel. So, I’m going to begin by removing my old nails. I did these
nails in my other Born Pretty haul, and you can see that in video in the upper right corner
of your screen. Anyways, now I’m going to apply my UNT Peel off base coat to all the
nails. And then we can start. So the first one is a glitter gel gradient. So I’m going
to be using gel, so I’m applying a coat of gel base coat to the first nail. And I’m going
along cleaning up, making sure none of that gel is on my skin. And then I’m going to cure
for 30 seconds. Then I have this gel color, it is kind of an orange red. And I’m just
going to do a nice thin coat of that. And then curing that. Now it’s time for the glitter.
This is a beautiful purple chunky glitter, it has some holographic in it too. So I’m
taking the brush and first what I’m doing, is kind of piling it up there at the cuticle.
Just putting a good pile, and then as I start to run out of glitter on the brush, I can
do some downward strokes. And then when I have hardly any on the brush, I can go even
more down. Here I’m adding some more. Oops, got some on my skin. That was bound to happen.
Now I’m taking a wood stick, you cam also use a toothpick, and just using that to kind
of further drag the glitters down on the nail, to give that gradient effect. And then here
I’m cleaning up that little mess around the cuticle. And then curing. Now it’s time for
top coat, this is my Born Pretty no-wipe gel top coat. And then I’m going to cure that.
Alrighty so that is the first glitter gradient nail, what do you think of this one? Next
we’re going to do a glitter placement gradient. So glitter placement is, basically, you’re
placing pieces of glitter individualy, and you’re going to make it into a gradient effect.
So this is going to be like a black and gold gradient themed one for New Years. So I’m
covering up the free edge with a black polish. You don’t have to do this, but it helps give
the impression that the nail is fully covered with the glitter, because sometimes it’s a
little bit tricky. So now I have this glitter kit I got from Amazon, it’s a very cheap one,
it’s only like $7, and I did have some bleeding with the colors, but it works for the most
part. So I’m just taking the gold and the black glitter from that. Now for adhering
the glitters, I like using the clear polish because it doesn’t dry as quickly as a base
coat or top coat would, and it gives you more time to work with it. And then you’re going
to need a toothpick. So I’m going to start off with the gold glitter. And it’s easier
to pick them up when they’re all laid out flat, so I’m just usiny my nail to scoop up
some and put some into the lid. Perfect, let’s set that aside. And then I’m just going to
lightly brush over some of the clear polish where I’ll be working. And then dipping the
tip of the toothpick into that too. So just go ahead and start placing those gold glitters
randomly around on the nail. These are just going to be the little accents. The main glitter
we’ll be using is the black one. Ok, so, we’re going to get out the black glitter, and start
placing that, and the idea is that you’re going to fill in everywhere between those
gold glitters. So you’re going to fill all that in. But it can be kind of hard to see
with the black polish, that is the thing, so. And as you can see, some of the glitters
are a little deformed, so yeah that kind of happens in this kit unforutantly. But anyways,
I got some more and I’m just going to keep on filling in the space. And now, because
we’re aiming to make this a gradient, I’m going to start putting them up higher and
higher and even more sparcely. And keep adding some more clear polish as you need it. So
there we go, I was pretty happy how that came out. It’s all really glittery and the gold
glitter really gives it a nice sparkle. So this would be a perfect nail, it’s very festive,
for New Years. So the next gradient we’re going to do is a sponge-on glitter gradient.
So you’re seen me do these a lot I’m sure. But I’m going to be doing it different, I’m
going to be using a glitter which I don’t always use, a holo specifically. I’m going
to be using purple and pink, so I’m just giving the nail a base color of pink. And then with
my latex, I’m just protecting around the skin, and then I’m going to take my purple holo,
and painting that onto a makeup sponge. And as you can see, I’m not painting the colors
over the whole top of the sponge, you don’t need that much for a nail and it would just
be wasteful. So after that first coat, I’m going to put a little more on and keep sponging
back and forth and up and down until your’e happy. And then peel off the latex. Alright
doing a little bit of clean up there. And I’m pretty picky how clean my cuticles are,
so I’m just using a toothpick there. Ok, so that is the sponge-on glitter gradient nail.
Alright next we’re going to do a fan brush gradient. So I haven’t done a lot of these,
I did this techniqye in this mani here I did on my Instargram. So anyways, I’m going to
be using two holos this time, and black and a gold. So this is another design for New
Years. So I’m just going to paint the nail the lighter color of the two, and that would
be the gold. And then I’m protecting around the skin with latex. Ok, so here is the black
holo. And then I’m using this fan brush I got from a kit on Twinkled T. By the way,
there are links in the description for some of the products I use like this one. So I’m
going to paint the top half of the nail, kind of thickly with that black holo, and then
I’m going to paint on some of the gold holo there, and start brushing it back and forth.
And you want to be kind of gently, I guess I did it a little bit too hard there, you
can see it scraped some of the polish off. But it worked all right. So you’re just going
to use the brush to just go back and forth, a little bit up and down to blend the colors.
Ok, so I let it dry for about one minute, and then I’m doing a second coat. So again,
painting on the black, the gold, and then swiping back and forth. And it definitely
gives a different effect than the sponge on one, because there is the asp[ect for the
lines going back and forth. So it’s very neat. Ok, so I’m happy with that, I’m peeling off
the latex. And cleaning up, and there we go. And that is how that one turned out, super
glittery! Ok, now it’s time for top coat, this is my Born Pretty no smudge top coat,
and I’m just applying a coat of that to the 3 regular polish nails becausr the gel polish
one already has it’s top coat. By the way, what are you’re favorite colors to use in
gradients? Share below! I hope you enjoyed watching the tutorial. But I noticed that
my most popular Instragram photo is this dip powder one I did with the marble stamping.
