It's officially FALL season, but this diy lady is still dwelling in summer colors!
I am somewhat proud of myself for today's mani. I did a gradient mani once again, and it wasn't completely horrible. AND I also did a freehand nail art and it too looked decent!! Who am I y'all?? I don't know what's going on with me! Haha!
I started my gradient with Luxe Coat - Velvet and used a sponge to do a gradient with Velvet and Butter London - Wellies (A pretty green polish from their fall collection). Then I applied One coat of China Glaze - Fairy Dust to blend my gradient together and add a bit of shimmer/holo to my nails.
Fairy Dust always makes me extra happy when used over ANY Color!
My Camera took a blurry picture and I had to show you, because it shows the holo is such a good way!
Here's the sponge I used and How I layered the colors for my gradient. Just dab the sponge on your nails to create the gradient.
Yes, I took a LOT of pictures. lol
More blurry Holo goodness.
At this point, I was like, OK, I took enough pictures, let me try some freehand nail art. If it turns out good, GREAT, if not, Whatevssss!
Here's what helped me nail it! I used a cuticle stick as my instrument! I dipped it into a black polish, and Just made lots of random C's U's and Dots on my nails to get the leopard print look.
I went ahead and did another nail, to create TWO accent nails. :-)
Even my mistakes looked like they were planned. lol..
See I took lots of pictures of this mani.
And That's it for now y'all. I will definitely be trying more freehand designs.
Feel free to share your thoughts with me.
P.S: Butter London - Wellies and Luxecoat - Velvet's individual swatches will be posted on the blog soon.
Till later, God bless.
