Almost black and gold gradient manicure

Hello

Just an easy manicure to share today. I’m quite fond of the gradient look manicure. There are so many possibilities with colour combinations and it is such an easy way to turn your plain manicure into something with a little more oomph.

I started off with two coats (although I could get away with one) of Max Factor Black Out. It’s a very, very dark greenish blue colour and on the nail it shows up completely different to the bottle. The photos really do not do justice to this polish. I then sponged Ciate Ladylike Luxe on the tips and topped it off with one of my favourite glitter toppers, OPI The Living Daylights. The colour combination of this glitter always gets my motor running, haha, I just really like the colours!

Oh, so pretty! I really like how the glitter goes further down than the gold. Ah! So pretty!

Pre-Spring Challenge Day 6: Sun

Hello

So today’s theme is Sun, fun fact: Sun is my real first name. True story!

Any who, so for today’s mani I started off with two coats of Revlon Mad About Mango and with Ciate Big Yellow Taxi, used the brush to create a roundish blob near the tip of the nail. I then used Timbleberry by Sinful Colors and sponged it onto the middle of the nail then sponged yellow over that again. For the finishing touch I added a black tip to look like a sunset!

I was inspired by this African sunset design. I think it looks below par.. Naughty Kalliana, you can do better!!
