For my mani, I decided to do a dotted gradient. I used a base if Pahlish Ace of Fours II (Bespoke Batch) because I loved that it was white so it made a good base for the dots, but it also was filled with blue flecks. For my dots, I used 4 Glam Polishes: Paradise, Sinister, Illusion, and Book of Shadows. I was inspired to do this dot gradient by The Lacquerologist's recent mani in the 31DC2015.
I've also got Glam Polish's charity polish for Alopecia Awareness, Bad Hair Day, to share. I've got full info on the shade below and how Glam Polish is using some of the proceeds from this polish to go to the Alopecia Areata Association of Australia. This is 2 easy coats of Bad Hair Day. Be sure to grab yours while you can and help support this cause!

Information and Facts About Alopecia
There are over half a million Australians and around 6.5 million americans living with Alopecia - a condition where people lose their hair from all areas of the body including the scalp, for which there is currently no known cure.
Approximately 60% of people diagnosed are under the age of 20, and for children especially, hair loss can have a negative impact on their self-esteem, which in many cases is linked to anxiety, depression, impaired academic performance and lack of social inclusion. To support children affected by the condition, Australia Alopecia Areata Foundation & Variety grants wigs - helping children gain their confidence and feel more comfortable amongst their peers.
* Alopecia (al-oh-PEE-shah) is a HAIRLOSS Condition, that can cause round patches of baldness, or total body hairless.
* There are 3 Main Types of Alopecia: Alopecia Areata - round patches / bald spots, Alopecia Totalis - complete Scalp baldness and Alopecia Universalis - total hair loss from body and scalp.
*Alopecia Areata is a believed to be a AUTOIMMUNE disease: the immune system mistakenly attacks the body (hair follicles) instead of defending it.
*Alopecia Areata affects MEN & WOMEN equally. It can occur at ANY AGE, often begins during childhood or early teen years. It does not discriminate on race.
*Alopecia is NOT Contagious.
