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.

Zoya Isa & Serenity

This manicure was so easy but the results are gorgeous. I started with a base of Zoya Serenity and the next day I added a swipe of Zoya Isa to one side of may nail and then wiped the brush mostly dry so I could drag out Isa with a dry brush. Super simple and no extra brushes needed.

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.

Zoya Nail Art

About a month ago I posted a dotticure using Zoya Mae and Cecilia but I forgot to show you the pictures of both hands; I did different nail art on my right and left hands - a rarity. On my right hand a I did a gradient using Zoya Cecilia and Nana. Not something I'll do often but having different things on my hands didn't feel quite as crazy as I thought it would.
