Center of Attention

I am still totally flipped out over the Dance all Night Collection by Cult Nails. I did this gorgeous manicure a couple of weeks ago when I saw the tutorial for this Glitter Tips design on Chit Chat Nails.

Marta did a stunning manicure using Time Traveller and Dance all Night... since I didn't want to copy her exactly, I created the look using Love at First Sight and Center of Attention...

The nude base is OPI Don't Pretzel my Buttons. (Keep reading to see this look with a wax top coat)

Like Marta, I decided to give this look a wax finish. I love how it mattified the nude shade but the glitter still shines through... it's a very cool effect!

As you can see this glitter tips gradient can be created with any length of fingernails. For people with shorter nails, it's a great way to get that "french tip" look without making your nails look shorter.
