Time for another Different Shades of Blue challenge post!
Originally I was going to do ombre nails...but I realized I don't have enough blue polish of the same tone in different shades! For some reason, I have very few really light or really dark blue polishes!
Instead I did a gradient!
Here is the "in progress" shot. I just LOVE how smooth the gradient came out, so I popped on a matte top coat and took a few photos :)
But that's nowhere near sparkly enough for me! So I added......glitter!
Base is Salley Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in "Choco-Latte". The pink tones in it make it the perfect nude for me!!I then did the gradient over that with a makeup sponge using Wet N' Wild "I Need a Refresh-Mint".
To do the glitter gradient, I just used the brush bottle from Forever 21's Love and Beauty "Turquoise".
If you didn't notice yesterday, I've cut all my nails down!! I was getting so tired of the peeling (any suggestions??) and I've noticed a lot less chipping on these than usual!
