This is very much the Ronseal of nail designs. It was also an excuse to bust out a few of my hoard of purples. The flash has made it look stripier than it did in real life, but you get the gist.
I used the sponge method to get the gradient effect for the purple colours and the just added glitter to the top half of my nails.
