Mirrorball Dipped Tips

An article on Beautylish got me thinking about using cosmetic glitter for a unique and mega sparkly nail polish. So I tried a glitter gradient with the gorgeous 3D Silver glitter from M.A.C. I must say that the photos don't even come close to the amazing holographic effect. 

Also, I found that the glitter wasn't rough or gritty after 2 coats of top coat and didn't shed as I have heard other similar manicure methods do.
