52 Week Pick N Mix Challenge: 2 Color Gradient/ Teal

Hello! Today I am beginning the Crumpet's Nail Tarts 52 Week Pick N Mix Challenge. This weeks prompts are two color gradient and/or teal. For this manicure I've decided to incorporate both prompts. For the base I used a teal, Color Club Age Of Aquarius. Then I placed striping tape on that and sponged on a gradient with China Glaze Feel The Breeze and China Glaze All Aboard.

Disney Nail Art: Frozen

Hello! Today my manicure is inspired by the movie Frozen! When I did my Disney nail are series last year Frozen had not come out yet, but I've been wanting to do nail art for it ever since I saw the movie. On my pointer is Hans' outfit, and my ring finger is Elsa's famous ice dress. For my ring finger I did the detailing on the dress that Anna wears the majority of the movie, and on my pinky is Kristoff's outfit. Last but not least, on my thumb is Olaf!
Pointer: Hans' vest is mostly Xtreme Wear Pacific Blue and his scarf is Xtreme Wear Raspberry Rave.
Middle: Elsa's dress is Xtreme Wear Breezy Blue with NYX Silver Glitter and China Glaze Capacity To See Beyond with Sally Hansen Bling-Tastic on top.
Ring: I frankened pretty much all of the colors on this nail except for the gold, which is OPI Golden Rules!
Pinky: The base is Revlon Icon with other shades of grey randomly sponged on. The belt part is China Glaze Seduce Me, Grass is Lime Greener, and What A Pansy.
Thumb: For the base I did a gradient using Zoya Blu and LA Splash Blowfish Blue. The carrot is Xtreme Wear Sun Kissed.

Zebra Print and Zoya Aurora

Zoya Aurora is one of my all time favorite polishes and I was just really in the mood to wear it! It's been ages since I've done any kind of animal print, so I threw some zebra stripes on using Xtreme Wear Celeb City.

Many Many Dots

 Hello! Today on my nails I have a ton of dots. I did a manicure like this a little while ago, found here, and I wanted to try it again, but this time using a sort of color scheme. For this mani I used so many blue, pink, and purple polishes that I could never name them all. I like how it turned out, but I feel like there aren't enough larger dots towards the top.

Warm Toned Splatter

Hi! Today I have a splatter mani! It's been a while since I did any kind of splatter, and it used to be one of my favorite techniques, so I really wanted to try it again. It's really easy for me to go overboard when doing splatter, so I tried to concentrate on not getting any humungous blobs of polish on the nail. I'm very happy with the result; I love the colors! The base is Zoya Jacqueline. For the splatter I used Xtreme Wear Razz-Berry, China Glaze Giver's Theme, and Zoya Thandie.

Pinks And Blues Water Marble

Hello! Today I have another water marble! I was so happy with my last one, so I really wanted to do another. While I think I'm getting better at making them neat, I'm still trying to work out how to get actual designs onto the nail. For this mani I used China Glaze Givers Theme, Capacity To See Beyond, New Birth, and Color Club Kiss My French.
