Monday evening... one day down, 4 more to go!! I'm having a case of laziness and I'm not working out today... instead, I'm taking care of my hubby whom I got sick!! My stuffiness is still hanging around but I feel much much better than I did last week, but it's day #1 for him... he's been a bum all day, catching up on his shows in his man cave. Well, the upside to this is that he feels too miserable to cook (and I won't touch it cuz I'll burn the house down haha), so we're ordering sushi!! Yay!!! =))
Today's challenge called for a triple gradient with a pattern. Took a little time to accomplish this, but I really like the result!! I used 3 different China Glaze polishes for this: "Keep Calm, Paint On," "Secret Peri-Wink-le," and "Fancy Pants." Check out my pictures below the jump to see the process of creating this mani step by step!
First I painted my nails with Keep Calm, Paint On. It's a mint green with silvery shimmer (for my full review click here). It took two coats to reach opacity.
Next I sponged on a coat of Secret Peri-Wink-le, a blue periwinkle creme (full review here). It created just a slightest of a gradient, which is ok with me. Pardon my uncleaned nails, but I didn't want to unnecessarily use acetone on my cuticles since I would have to do it all over anyway once I was finished with the mani.
I completed my gradient with Fancy Pants, a blurple with magenta shimmer, sponged on my tips (full review here).
I completed the look by stamping with a dotted design from plate SH-03, and by adding purple rhinestones.
Like I said above, it took forever to do this since I had to wait for each layer to dry first before applying the next one. I really really love the outcome though!! What about you?
Thanks so much for reading!!! =)
