Good morning polished world! How are you all doing on this awesome Friday? It's been quite a long week for me, so I am super excited that tomorrow is Saturday and I can sleep in! Oh how I love sleep-in-Saturday!
Today I'm sharing a very pink and girlie manicure! I recently received the Spring Picnic in the Park Collection from FingerPaints. One of the polishes in this collection is Sweet Spring, a gorgeous baby pink cream. Now, if you know me, I'm not one to wear pink polishes. Lately though, I have been finding myself gravitating towards them, and Sweet Spring was no exception.
So I grabbed a darker pink and I just started playing around. The end result was quite fabulous.
- FingerPaints - Sweet Spring
- Essence - Ultimate Pink
- INM - Northern Lights
- Black Acrylific
To get the look, I started off with a base coat of Sweet Spring. It took two coats to get full coverage of the beautiful pastel pink. Can we take a minute to talk about how awesome FingerPaint's brush is? It reminds me to the OPI brush, which is one of my favorites. I hate the thin little brushes that require me to paint and paint and paint to get one coat. With a wide brush like this one, I just have to do 3 swipes to get a perfect coat.
When my pretty pink base was dry, I took a make up sponge and created the pink gradient with Sweet Spring and Essence Ultimate Pink. It is one of the best gradients I have ever created in my whole 3 years of blogging! I couldn't stop staring at it! So, what did I decide to do.....add glitter! And guess what, it made it even more amazing!!!
I couldn't just have a plain gradient on my nails though. I had to add some crazy nail art, which clearly means leopard print! I kind of created a reverse gradient with the design which I think turned out to look really cool. Sweet Spring was awesome for nail art. Light colors like that sometimes don't dot well, but I had no problems with this.
What do you think? Fun manicure? Something you would try?
Until next time, <3.
