The theme is Gradient Nails.
I'm in love!! I just love gradients, they're really pretty and eye-catching. I always get compliments when I wear gradients.
Here are the polishes I used:
I've been told recently that people like when I include bottle pictures, so I will try to do it more often!
This mani started with 2 coats of Joe Fresh - Iris.
Most of the time, Joe Fresh polishes don't jump out at me, but recently I actually picked up three of the newer ones that were just lovely! I'll show you the other two sometime soon, I'm sure.
Most pictures of this color came out inaccurate, but this next photo shows the true color of the polish:
Excuse the lobster hands and blurry photo! Sometimes that is the only way you can get the right color to show up!
It is a blue-toned dusty purple, and I have nothing else like it!
Can't Cheat On Me is a sheer but buildable subtle holographic polish from Essence. These babies only cost 99 cents at Ulta.
This swatch is four coats. Because it is so sheer, I knew it would be awesome for gradients!
In this close up, you can see the subtle holo going on. It is pretty but not very obvious.
On top of the Essence gradient, I added a coat of OPI - Yule Love This Silver to give it some more holo sparkle! The particles in the OPI are larger and brighter so they give it a nice glittery effect.
Look how pretty the bottle looks in this photo! Hehe.
I totally love this mani, and I can't wait to try another gradient with Can't Cheat On Me!
It is a bit wintery though... Can't you picture it with some snowflakes stamped on? I'll have to keep that in mind for the Christmas season!
Don't forget, my GOSH Holographic giveaway ends on Monday night! Be sure to enter and tell all your friends! :)
