Alphabet Challenge: T is for... Twinkly Tips

Hello my friends! Only six letters left! This has been fun :D

Today's letter is T!

BLURRY AT THIS SIZE WAT (click to enlarge)

Gradient glitter tips are so easy and fun and pretty :D And all the polishes start with T to boot!

I couldn't decide which combination I wanted to use, so I decided "ah, what the hey" and did one on each hand! Because #yolo and all that >.>

This is by far my favourite of the two hands :D

I love this combination on my right hand! The lovely bronze base colour is Soulstice Spa Tokyo, and this is two coats. I absolutely adore it, not that this is any surprise to any regular readers here who know I have a massive girlboner for Soulstice Spa.

It was just pointed out to me that it looks rather reddish in these photos. It is more true-coppery-bronze in real life.

The tips are the bottle in the shot and one of my favourite glitters, China Glaze Tinsel Town. I was able to just use the brush that came with the bottle and do a few thin coats. This polish worked really well for this look, and it feels so posh! I want to wear it as a full mani soon!

Also pretty :D

Right hand! The silver base is by Petites and is called Twilight. It's a bit thin, but this is three layers and it does look nice, if a bit too frosty to be a favourite. You could see the brushstrokes a bit more than I prefer. But overall, a good polish.

The tips are the bottle in the photo--it is Milani Twinkle. It doesn't look as blue IRL as it appears in this photo--the primary hue is violet. This is one of their "one coat glitters" (although it really needs two for full opacity). It's packed with warm purple microglitters and small cerulean-blue hexes. The purple is that colour that is famous for not photographing properly. So pretty in real life!

It also, unlike the other glitter, is impossible to use the brush for anything remotely resembling smooth application. I used a makeup sponge to build up this gradient, and it worked wonderfully. :D

Topcoated with Seche Vite and done!

Not the best pic at all, but you can actually see the purple properly, whee :D

Okie, that's all for now! I'm getting this post up late, hope anybody actually sees it >.>
See you next time! xoxo


  1. I love the red ones! I think I am going to try that.
