It’s been awhile since I’ve done a gradient without the benefit of using glitter (such a great cheat with gradients) so dusted off some blues to play around a little.
The base, which you can make out near the nail bed, is China Glaze For Audrey, which I’ll really need to use sometime all on its own because it’s just darling. Then went in with a couple of makeup sponge rounds using China Glaze Towel Boy Toy — a fair bit darker than For Audrey and laced with shimmery goodness. Finished by capping with two rounds of love & beauty Royal Iridescent Nailpolish and suddenly really wanted to head down to the neighborhood pool to show ‘em off (stupid work always getting in the way of fun!).
