Double Gradient Waves

Hello! I used wave nail vinyls to create two vertical gradients for this one. For the gradients I used Zoya Blu, OPI You're Such A Buda-Pest, Color Club Macaroon Swoon, and Zoya Neely.

Pink With Lightning

Here's a fun and simple design I did using lightning shaped nail vinyls. The silver is Xtreme Wear Celeb City, the pink outline is Milani Digital, and the rest is Zoya Aurora.

Sunset Stripes

 I was originally going to do a bit more with this design, but I ended up having an awful time with this manicure. The adhesive on the nail vinyls that I used stuck to my nails and made a huge mess. It drove me crazy, so I decided to clean up as much as I could and call it a day, and thankfully the camera was actually pretty forgiving. I used Xtreme Wear Purple Craze, Vibrant Violet, Raspberry Rave, For Sher-Bert, Red Rebel, and Sunny Side. I love the gradient these polishes made, so I'll probably use them again, hopefully with more success.

Matte Black and Silver

Here's a simple striping tape design that I did because I really like the look of matte black.  Unfortunately my matte topcoat sometimes leaves behind weird white specs, which are especially obvious over black. I used Essie No Place Like Chrome for the silver.

Blue Stripes and Floral

Here's a cute design that I did experimenting with painting floral patterns. The blue is Xtreme Wear Dabbler, and the flowers are primarily Color Club Yum Gum. In hindsight I probably should have painted more flowers at the bottom corners because they really didn't end up being as prominent as I wanted.

Teal and Purple Watermarble

Today I tried to do a watermarble that wasn't just stripes, which are a design that I always default to when marbling. I used China Glaze Let's Jam, China Glaze Sweet Hook, China Glaze Too Yacht To Handle, and China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint.

Pastel Glitter Placement

 Here's a glitter placement that I did just playing around with polishes from the China Glaze Surprise collection. I picked out just the pastel glitters from China Glaze Glimmer More and I'm A Go Glitter, and experimented a little with placement patterns.
