Red to Gold GradientSaturday, December 10, 2011
I hope that everyone has been having a great weekend so far. :D
Today my plans got all screwed up and we didn't end up going to the reunion, which sucked. >:( But, I cheered myself up a bit by talking with loved ones, and giving myself a sparkly gradient manicure!
For this manicure I started with two coats of China Glaze Poinsettia. I then added two coats of China Glaze Ring in the Red. After that, I sponged some Orly Luxe onto the bottom of the nail. I had difficulty sponging this polish on evenly, as it is a VERY pigmented polish (don't get me wrong, it is awesome! :D If you are looking for a pale gold polish, I can't recommend anything better than this!). To even out the gradient, I then sponged some China Glaze White Cap on the tips and higher up on the nail, and it's golden shimmer really helped. Man, I love that polish! I also sponged some Sephora by O.P.I Only Gold for Me on the tips, to give it some added sparkle.
Wow, I said "sponged" waaay too many times in this post!
Anyhoo, that's all it took! :D Very fun and I think it is a lovely and festive combination!
Have a wonderful Saturday night, everyone! I hope that you are doing well and staying safe! ^-^
