Wishing For Summer

6 Feb

I’m quite excited about the manicure I did tonight. It was one of the more time consuming ones, but I still love it! I started with two coats of Sinful Colors Beautiful Girl, such a pretty cream light pink.

(Unfortunately, I had to use my point and shoot for this picture and it had some issues with color.)

Then I used a makeup sponge to achieve the gradient look using Sally Hansen’s Rose Rush for the middle, then using the sponge again I used Milani’s Cherry Pie for the tip.

I sealed that off with a coat of Essie’s To Dry For. I love this look on its own, but since I had a Konadless mani yesterday I couldn’t help it. I used Konad’s Special White polish and plate m63.

I finished it off with 2 coats of To Dry For…okay maybe it was three, I can’t help it! Another fun Valentine’s Day look.


Sparkly Gradient

2 Feb

I decided to add a little sparkle to my current manicure of my DIY nail color.  I used Sally Hansen’s Celeb City, it is one of my favorite silvers. I wanted  a soft gradient look as opposed to the hard line I’d get with tape.  I opted to use a foam make-up applicator, brushing some polish onto the tip and lightly patting my nail.

Its a little difficult to see in pictures since the Celeb City is so sparkly, here are a few different angles/lighting.
