Nude and Neutral Glitter Gradient

Oh my goodness, I am in love with these nails! I think the gradient really pop's when there is just a stripe of it. They are so sparkly and elegant, perfect for a party or wedding. I think these would be great for Christmas, but I'm getting a little ahead of myself!
Colors Used 
China Glaze White On (base for the glitter gradient)
China Glaze Boundary of Memory (dark glitter)
China Glaze Champagne Kisses (light glitter)
China Glaze Don't Honk Your Thorn (nude)
Seche Vite Top Coat

To get this look I did a glitter gradient using Boundary of Memory and Champagne kisses. I then used two strips of NailVinyls straights, put them right down the center and painted Don't Honk Your Thorn over the whole nail. 

I can't wait to try more color combo's with this, it is so simple but stunning! 


Halloween Water Marble

Guess what?! The Zoya Matte Velvet's work great for water marbling! I could not find a black polish in my stash so I grabbed the next best thing, Zoya Domiva and to my surprise it worked out great to water marble with. I  made water marble decals to do this mani and you can check out the tutorial I did over at the Barielle Blog.

The matte nails contrasting with the two shiny ones is awesome! Easy and fun for Halloween!


52 Week Challenge for The Crumpets - Grey and Color


I'm trying to do more posts and be more creative so I thought I would join in on The Crumpets 52 Week Challenge. Every week there are two challenges, this week was 70's or grey with color. I decided to do grey with color. I felt like doing something bright and fun since it's gloomy and rainy here today. I created a gradient with China Glaze Capacity To See Beyond and Strike A Rose. I stamped over it with China Glaze Intelligence, Integrity and Courage and Nail Craze Plate NC02.
I did my other fingers with Intelligence, Integrity and Courage and topped everything with China Glaze Fairy Dust.

I love how Intelligence, Integrity and Beyond looks with Fairy Dust over it. I am obsessed with it lately, its so pretty and sparkly!

Fall Nail Art with Zoya Ignite & Entice Collection

I am loving this super simple, sophisticated look! It is perfect for the crisp fall weather and has little metal studs for some extra fun. To create the look I did a triangle french, then painted little triangles at the bottom, drew a line from one point to the other and then added the studs I got from Born Pretty Store. (use can use my promo code MEL91)

What do you think? I will be wearing this look for a few days for sure!
