Huizhen requested for this glitter gradient star mani that was in one of my nail art magazines:
In the end, we decided to use China Glaze Midnight Ride (very rich dark purple that looks black indoors) as the base and I sponged on OPI Show It And Glow It! (from the Burlesque collection) + Zoya Nova on some nails and Zoya Astra on other nails, alternated.
The original design had perfect-looking stars, so I’m guessing they were stenciled in, maybe with airbrush or just paint. I freehanded mine:
Each nail had a white star and a black star, and Huizhen requested that black stars be outlined halfway, so I did it with Art Club’s solid silver striper polish.
This looks way nicer in real life!
