Matte Tinted Glitter Gradient

I hope you're enjoying your Monday! Today I have another manicure for Monkey See Monkey Do Monday. Basically you take inspiration from or recreate a mani done by someone else. 

I was inspired by this mani done by Ommorphia Beauty Bar. I used completely different polishes, but achieved a very similar effect. I used one coat of OPI Lincoln Park After Dark as my base. Next I sponged OPI Rainbow Connection on about two-thirds of my nails starting at the cuticle. To give the tint, I did one coat of OPI Houston We Have a Purple, a sheer jelly. Finally to give make my design a matte finish, I used Hard Candy Matte-ly in Love

I posted pictures of both matte and shiny. I love the way adding the matte top coat makes the glitter pop.

OPI retails for $8.50 at Ulta and Target, also various places online.
