Glitter Gradient With Zoya

Zoya Monet has been a surprise favorite polish for me this year. I've never really been a huge fan of glitter toppers but this one is just so gorgeous! Here I used it for a glitter gradient over Zoya Genevieve.
I love graphic novels and comic books! You can see what else I've been reading on Goodreads.

Thanks for reading!

Gradient Nails - Zoya Aubrey & Daul

Just a quick post with a pretty fall gradient, still my favorite nail art for so many reasons! They are so easy to accomplish that you really can't mess them up so you can definitely do both hands. They are very fast and they'll cover up tip wear and even minor chipping. For this version I started with a base of Zoya Aubrey and added the drop dead gorgeous Zoya Daul.
 I love to read! If you do too please find me on goodreads!

Jamberry Glitter Gradient

A friend of mine let me borrow a few Jamberry polishes to try out since I've never used them before and I was able to do a lovely glitter gradient with two of the polishes. I started out with a base of Jamberry Kiss and then added a bit of Jamberry Stardust to the base of my nails. Stardust is a mixture of very fine glitter in fuchsia, gold, and turquoise. It would make a fantastic Mardi Gras polish!
 
She let me borrow two other polishes that are sadly discontinued. The yellow polish is called Lemon Drop and it's one of the best yellow cremes I've ever tried. Yellow cremes are notorious for being a streaky gloppy messes but this one was fantastic and barely needed a second coat!

Thanks for reading!

Elizabeth Arden Spring Gradient

Gradient manicures are my favorite go to nail art without a doubt. Almost impossible to mess up & so easy to accomplish. Here I started with a base of Elizabeth Arden Ahoy & then used a slightly damp makeup sponge to add Elizabeth Arden Seaview Crimson to the tips. Perfect for spring & it matches my shirt!

Zoya Brooklyn & Cosmo!

Glitter gradients are the best! Here I started with Zoya Brooklyn and then added a bit of Zoya Cosmo starting at the base of my nails. This look reminds of a gorgeous jewel encrusted ball gown, something you could wear on the red carpet; I love it!
I am a voracious reader. You can check out what I'm reading on my Goodreads profile!

Glitter Gradient With Sation Tira Miss-U & Tall Dark & Has Some

Sation Tall Dark & Has Some is perhaps my all time favorite glitter topper. (This is the fourth time I've used it!) I decided to pair it with Sation Tira Miss-U, a new but already beloved edition to my stash. Pretty combo & you just can't go wrong with a super easy glitter gradient in my opinion!

Glitter Gradient With JENsations Rainbow Sprinkles & Sation Off The Record Pink

Here's a pretty & delicate glitter gradient that I love! I started with a base of Sation Off The Record Pink then topped it with one coat of the fabulous Rainbow Sprinkles from JENsations. (You can see my previous post layering it over a berry jelly polish here.) Still available from her Etsy store for $8. I've got my eye on Turn Off the Lights too. Hurry & place your orders before November 3 when she'll take her last orders before a long hiatus!

Green Gradient Nails

I love gradient nails of all varieties. Here I started with a base of Sation Plenty Of Frogs, then added BB Couture Poison Ivy with a slightly damp makeup sponge. Next some Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Jumpin Jade & finally Zoya Storm. Gradients are pretty fool proof & easy enough to do on both hands. A great technique that never fails to look great!

Layering With Sation Tall Dark & Has Some & Stirring Silver

This is one coat of Sation Stirring Silver topped with a gradient of Sation Tall Dark & Has Some. It's a very unique glitter with medium black circles, tiny turquoise glitter, & large turquoise shards in a clear base. So cool & similar in type to a favorite from last year, Sation Ego Friendly. I love this combination!
