I thought this would be a great topcoat because of the flakes and since it looked like it would be sheer, but after I put on the first coat I realized that I could *probably* try to do a gradient with this. So I gave it a shot and here' how it turned out.
I am sooo pleased at how this turned out! It is the best gradient (i think) that I have done so far. It was so easy.
1) Start with one full coat.
2) Apply another coat to half of your nail.
3) Then two more coats along the smile line.
That's it! It is not that hard, but why did it take me so long, you ask. It is sooo hard to find the right kind of nail polish that you can build. This one also has some glitter and small flakies in it which hides the lines even more.
Now if I could just find this same formula in other colors! From what I remember I didn't see any more colors in petites that had this type of consistency and flakies. But I'll think I'll head back to my Wal-Mart soon!
