Good morning and Happy Monday! It’s a beautifully chilly winter’s day today! We got a couple inches of snow over the weekend while I was away watching Hunger Games, so the entire town is blanketed in a gorgeous layer of the white stuff 😀 Christmas carols are running through my head all of my waking hours now, and I have graduated from snowflake/winter earrings to Christmas ones! Is anyone else getting excited??
Let’s get to the nails. I did these a while back and was reluctant to even post them because I couldn’t get them to look right in the pictures. I loved this mani, the pictures didn’t do it any justice at all!
For this I started with 2 coats of Color Club Eternal Beauty. Of my select few holo polishes, Eternal Beauty is by far my favourite! Could be partially cause it’s purple… 😉
Then I used a yellow kitchen sponge and created a gradient using Color Club Eternal Beauty and Halo-graphic. When that was dry, I applied striping tape on my ring nail and created a gradient using the same polishes but in the reverse order over the striping tape.
I have to say that while I love tape and stripe manis, striping tape is such a pain to work with. Hence why I only did my ring nail 🙂 And I was lazy and didn’t apply a top coat before I showered, so that’s why there are marks on the middle nail from washing my hair. Yup, this was a lazy-day mani!
What do you think? I love how well the Halo Hues polishes sponge on in a gradient and how well these two shades work together.
