Gradient Nails with ILNP "Emerald Dew Drops"

Hello dears! I treated myself to a little ILNP order a little while ago and it arrived today, hooray! I could only afford one, so I went for the one I have been dying to get for ages: "Emerald Dew Drops" (an obvious choice, given my love for all things green).

It's a clear-based glitter topper with a variety of green, teal, and white glitters (all different shapes, sizes, and finishes). 

It is so beautiful, and I wanted to do something a bit more special than just layering it over a plain base, so I did a gradient to layer it over instead. For the gradient I used two Barry M Gelly Nail Paints: "Sugar Apple" and "Watermelon", and I applied two coats of "Emerald Dew Drops" on top of that.

Pictures are all with top coat:

What do you think? I haven't done anything like this for a long time, but despite my lack of practice, I am really pleased with the result.

Thanks for reading, and come back again soon :) x


  1. Very cute! The gradient makes me think of summer and diving and the glitter makes me think of ocean gems. :)

  2. This was a really pretty layering combination! I love the length and shape of your nails, wish mine could be that long :) x

  3. very nice gradient :) I really like it!
