Two-Toned Nail Polish

After I saw this gradient glitter photo on Pinterest, I’ve been dying to dry glitter overtop of a solid nail polish. So when I saw these rust-colored Deborah Lippmann polishes at Nordstrom, I knew I couldn’t leave without them.

Since the Superstar polish was pretty thick on its own, the gradient polish idea turned two-toned instead, but still turned out beautifully.

Turns out this polish matches my thrifted rust blazer practically perfectly!

What can I say? Orange is taking over my life. And I love it.

Here’s the photo I was inspired by originally:

    Love the look! I tried it, too, but it just ended up looking like a glitter topcoat. Oh well, love the orange nails!

  2. Ditto, Rebecca! A couple months ago when getting a mani, I asked the guy to try this trend but he wouldn\’t saying it would just look like a glitter topcoat. Guess that\’s not too encouraging when even the pros say it won\’t work. Oh well! Glitter topcoats are glam and two-toned works just fine for me.
