I wonder if this mani would look the same if the pictures were in black and white?  That might be an interesting experiment to try.

I thought it would be fun to layer Lynnderella Connect the Dots over a black and white gradient.  I used Sally Hansen White On, Julep Annette and China Glaze Liquid Leather for my grey scale gradient.

I intentionally used a top coat that is heavy on the smear factor to help bleed the colors together even more.  It worked pretty well.

Connect the Dots is one of the roughest glitters I have.  I think it's because of the bars and the large hexs.  You definitely need a coat or two of a thick top coat to tame it.  Black and white glitters are the perfect compliment to pretty much any color polish.  There are a plethora of options out there on the market now, so you have no excuse for not having one in your stash.
