Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend! As previously mentioned, I own a LOT of purple polishes. Like a TON. It's my favorite color (for my nails, but also just in general), so I decided to make a gradient mani with a few of my purple polishes- Zoya Zara, Zoya Hope, and OPI DS Mystery! I did this using a makeup sponge and I blended the colors over my base coats of Zara. First I sponged the middle color, Hope, then I did the tips with DS Mystery. Hope you guys like it =]!
DS Mystery, Zoya Hope, and Zoya Zara!
I decided to make the tips the darkest part of this mani, but I have seen others do it in reverse. This is just the way I prefer it =]
Whole mani! Btw...that is totally not an engagement ring, it's a promise ring =]!
Overall, I really liked the look of this mani and it's really easy to do. However...it's longevity SUCKS. This thing lasted me a whopping 12 hours before it was chipped and yucky-looking. I had to do some moving from my old house this weekend so I'm positive that had something to do with the chipping...but still, these chips weren't small or even fixable, they were really ugly! I would do this mani again, but I might apply the darker polish a little thinner if possible to prevent chipping.
Have a great day!
