31 Day Challenge, Day 6: Violet

Good morning! As you can tell by the title, today's theme is violet! I'm a huge fan of purple so I was excited for this challenge day. I was inspired by a purple gradient on another blog, so I thought I would recreate it in a sense for my post!

I used 2 Nubar glitters: Petunia Sparkle & Violet Sparkle (how fitting for "violet" day!)

Below I did 2 coats of Petunia Sparkle and 1 sponged on 1 coat of Violet Sparkle

Petunia Sparkle is a gorgeous pinky-purple glitter & Violet Sparkle is a violet glitter! Both have the same formula. They're both extremely gritty and would need several coats of topcoat to smooth it out! Nonetheless, I think both are spectacular. The photos do not do them justice; I tried to capture a bit of the sparkle in photo #3 (though it's out of focus). 

What do you think of my violet challenge day mani?
