I took a couple quick pics of the process! I used white liquid latex to protect my fingers from the mess....I'm still not that great at gradients because I don't practice it enough! The latex definitely helps with the mess which really discouraged me from doing them in the past.
I left it on while I was drying and waiting to stamp. I used This Gown Needs A Crown for the silver stamping. I wanted to use the OPI chrome but it just wasn't picking up! Frustrating!
I also used a little bit of Pirouette my Whistle (glitter topper) but it covered too much of my partial castle on my pinkie! Dangit! I used a much lighter hand on the rest of my nails. I also wanted to see what these looked like matte!
