Orly Neon Orange Nail Gradient

Hello lovelies!

Here's another short sweet post with a quick nail gradient. Can you tell I am totally aching for some hot weather. I will gladly take anything over 59 degrees! 

This is two coats of Purity by Illamasqua. I then used a spong to do a couple of coats of Sun of a Peach by China glaze from about the center of my nail down. Lastly I used the other side of the sponge to do the very tip of the nail with Mayhem Mentality by Orly. The metallic polish on my ring finger is Law of Attraction by Formula X. I then used a nail art brush and black polish to paint on the zebra and cheetah print. Lastly I used Deborah Lippmann Hard Rock as my top coat for a super glossy finish. 

I ended up loving this bright manicure! Hope you guys did as well!

Teal Gradient Nail

Hi sunshines!

Just a short and sweet entry today. The weather is starting to get nice and nothing makes me think summer more than gorgeous teals and sea greens.

First I did 2 coats of Formula X, Wonderment. It is a neutral matte finish with a very faint pink micro shimmer to it. It first seemed to go on pretty streaky and chalky. (I hated it matte but love it with a top coat and it totally hid the streaks!) Then I used a nail polish I got from Dots, called Light Green and for the darkest part of the gradient I sponged on Wildchild, by Funky Fingers at the very tips. Lastly, on the ring finger I free handed a design using a small nail art brush. Two coats of Deborah Lippmann's Hardrock for top coat and I was done! Hope you like it!
