I started this fading gradient by using essie chinchilly, a cream granite grey with a hint of purple, at the tips of my nails. I let it dry a bit and then used a clear polish to drag out the bottom color towards my cuticles. Next, I used nails inc. special effects sugar house lane, a beige cupcake sprinkle effect, and applied it in the middle of my nails. After letting it dry for a bit, I used the clear polish to drag it down towards my cuticles for a gradient fading look. For my accent finger, I used China Glaze Glistening Snow which is a beautiful silver sparkle polish with holographic bits scattered throughout.
