Cosmic Gradient! My Favorite Things Nail Challenge Day 7 "Glitter"

Hello everyone!

Today is day 7 of My Favorite Things Nail Challenge and the theme is Glitter!

When I think about glitter, I instantly think about a gradient if I want to do nail art. But I wanted to do something a bit complicated for the challenge so I went for a 4 polishes gradient:

As a basecoat I wanted to try using one coat of PVA glue, that's what I did so I'll keep you guys updated on my thoughts!

To achieve the design I started with one coat of China Glaze - Stone Cold, and sponged OPI - Metallic 4 Life on the up part of my nail.
Then I sponged Orly - Space Cadet on the bottom half of my nail and added some duochrome glitter from Kleancolor - Chunky Holo Black.

I really like the effect of this gradient, giving a fire and space aspect that is really cool!
I'm also fascinated with all the polishes I used for this mani so I really like it!

What do you think?
