Good morning polished world! How are you all doing today? I'm still feeling a tad under the weather. And it doesn't help that the weather is completely different than what it was at the beginning of the week. Seriously, it was 90 and humid, and now it's 60, cold, damp, and raining. I wouldn't have minded the temperature change if it came slowly, not all at once. Oh well, it's going to be hot again next week.
Today I am sharing one of my end of the summer manicures. I was in the mood for a gradient and some polka dots so I decided to combine the two. What I ended up with was a fun, crazy, bright manicure that I fell in love with.
Let's take a look!
- Orly - White, Purple Crush, Be Daring, and Skinny Dip
- INM - Northern Lights
Adorable, right? Part of me wishes that I didn't reverse the gradient on the middle and ring finger and kept it going in the same direction as all the other nails. I do like the mish mosh of it, but I think it might have been less busy if I kept it all going in one direction.
I've been obsessed with my Orly neons lately. They make some of the greatest bright polishes. For this gradient, I only had to dab the sponge on the white nail a few times before having complete coverage. Only one nail I had to go back through and dab to get it as opaque as the others. They're just such brilliantly beautiful polishes.
What do you think? Do you think I should have kept the gradient the same on all the nails? Or maybe laid it out differently?
Until next time, <3.
