Sally Hansen Gradient

I'm pretty obsessed Sally Hansen Yummy Yam. Here I added a bit of Sally Hansen Maasai Red and dry brushed it into a gradient. Very easy and perfect for fall.

Gradient With Bar Glitter

Bar glitter is hard to get right and often quite hideous. I'm still drawn to them occasionally though which is why I bought Nails Inc Feathers Chester on a whim. It looks so pretty all stacked up in the bottle!
 

I picked the colors from my last gradient specifically to go with it. I think it turned out pretty well!

Easy & Fast Gradient Nails

I love how this gradient turned out! I used Lime Crime Crema de Limon, Maybelline Pretty In Peach, and American Apparel The Valley. Super easy and fast. I did one nail at a time, starting with the blue polish, then adding the peach and finally the yellow. I worked quickly to make sure the colors could blend.

BB Couture Double Gradient

I recently discovered that BB Couture Electric Avenue is a bad polish but I was already wearing it and I needed my nails to look nice in a hurry so I did a quick double sponge gradient to disguise the bubbles and streaks. I used BB Couture Poison Ivy for the gradient which is a terrific polish.

Sally Hansen Insta Ombre Scarlet Spark

Sally Hansen Insta Ombre Scarlet Spark is from a new summer 2015 collection full of fine glitters in clear polishes meant to be used for glitter gradients. With all of the crazy glitters on the market this collection is a nice change of pace and perfectly suited for it's intended use.
Scarlet Spark is a mix of very fine red and silver glitters that I used here for a glitter gradient over one coat of Sally Hansen Polar Bare. Great formula and very pretty.

Revlon Gradient

I love this super simple gradient made with Revlon polishes - Seashell, Banana Blaze, and Cherry Fizz. I started with a base of Seashell and then added Cherry Fizz and Banana Blaze one nail at a time so colors could blend. A foolproof technique that's fast and looks great every time.
 
 
 
 
My friend Drew makes 3D models for printing and he recently printed this giant anatomical heart. You can download the model to 3D print at Thingiverse! I'm trying to convince him to turn it into a lamp.

Louboutin Bottle Nail Art

I love the gorgeous Rouge Louboutin bottle so I decided to do my nails to match. I started with Rouge Louboutin and then added a sponged gradient in Zoya Willa. Super easy and super sexy!

Double Sponge Gradient With Maybelline

I was going out on the town and Maybelline Pretty In Peach just didn't go with anything I wanted to wear. I needed a fast way make it work with my killer navy dress so I went with my go to nail art, gradients. This time I opted for lots of texture and and left just a bit of the peach color exposed in the middle of my nail. Looked great and was super easy and fast! I used Maybelline New Year's Blues to coordinate with my navy dress.

My friend made me a bracelet with a file I made with Nervous System's bracelet generator app! I emailed him the .stl and next day I had a 3D printed bracelet. I'm pretty darn happy to be alive right now with all of this fun new technology!

Quick Glitter Gradient

Glitter gradients will probably always be my favorite go to nail look. They are fast, easy, foolproof, and fancy every time. For this version I started with a base of Milani Blackberry Baby and then added Sation Rich In Opportunities. I really wish Sation was still making polish; they had so many great colors and I loved their wide brush. Do any of you have any beloved Sations?

Zoya Tinsley and Madeline

I love this fiery but still work appropriate glitter gradient! I started with a base of Zoya Madeline and added just the barest hint of Zoya Tinsley to the base of each nail. So simple but so captivating!

Glamorous Glitter Gradient With Zoya

Zoya's Fall Trend Guide recommended using Tomoko for a gradient and it sounded like a great idea to me. As much as I love the Pixie Dusts, I'd never thought about using one quite this way. I paired 2 of my all time favorite Zoyas for a super easy but totally gorgeous version, Zoya Veruschka for the base topped with Zoya Tomoko. This would be a great look for the upcoming holiday season, either as is, or alternating Posh and Veruschka for all out Christmas glam!

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.

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!
