The Starry Night

Nothing like a fine gold glitter gradient over navy blue to bring van Gogh to mind-you do have to admit that The Starry Night is pretty iconic! I love doing glitter gradients, they're so simple and quick. All you do is four coats of the glitter topcoat, first the entire nail, then three quarters, then half, and finally the last quarter.

Last month, I saw this manicure over at Pshiiit and knew I would have to replicate it, but then I fell down the rabbit hole of Shine of the Times and put it off. Yesterday my mani decided it wanted to chip, so I got my chance! The base is Julep Annette and the rectangles (yay scotch tape!) are Julep Gunta.

It didn't photograph as blue as it is in real life, which is more of a royal, not a navy. I do like it though. It's a little fall-ish and fairly subtle. I almost wish I had done it in black and white for a more mod feel.
