I've seen this Gilded Gradient Nail Art manicure by Illamasqua and I've decided to recreate it. You can see the original post and watch tutorial video HERE.
Because I don't own all the polishes from the video I had to improvise. As a base I've used two coats of Illamasqua Monogamous. Then I took a piece of sponge I wash dishes with (new one ;) to achieve the 'grainy' look. I started dabbing Illamasqua Victory (gold) to the tips and create gradient effect. The I had to find similar brown-ish colour to Faithful so I chose Barielle Cashmere Or Loose Me. Then I added a little bit of a bling instead of Swinger polish. I've used OPI Spark De Triomphe.
It is not exactly the same manicure but it's close enough I think :)
And this is the original manicure by Illamasqua:
