I hope you had an absolutely fantastic weekend =]! I spent my time relaxing and calming down from finals week, it's nice to be able to just BREATHE! When my mom returned from her Paris trip, she brought me a BUNCH of Euro polish goodies like Kiko and GOSH. I've been meaning to play with them, so I decided to do a fun gradient using Kiko 389 and Essence Bella topped with Kiko 298 (I also used a white base so the colors would be more vibrant). These pictures are deceiving...it was SOOO much brighter in real life, I was seriously blinded by it in the sunlight! I used this sponge gradient technique for my mani, I love how easy it is! Take a look =]!
Sometimes this technique is hard to make look smooth and not so spongey on your nail, but I found it helped to add the shimmery top coat; it tied the whole look together seamlessly! A major shout out to Mom for her super amazing polish shopping skills, she is AWESOME =]!
Have a great day (or, as good as a Monday can be =P)!
