The One with the Zebra Gradient


Good morning polished world!  I'm sorry, I forgot to post this earlier today.  I don't know how it slipped my mind, but here is my blog post!!! :)

It's been awhile since I posted any form of a zebra manicure.  I used to do them all the time because I loved them so much and I truly don't know why I haven't done one.  I guess I've been dot and flower obsessed lately.  Might need to start doing more animal prints in the near future because I miss doing them!

Let's take a look!




Colors Used:
  • China Glaze - UV Meant to Be
  • China Glaze - Let's Jam
  • Zoya - Cosmo
  • Orly - White Tips
  • Orly - Liquid Vinyl
How cute is this manicure?  I did something similar a few years ago with a leopard print and a gradient.  On that manicure though I believe I did a blue to purple gradient on each nail versus having a purple to white then white to blue.  I really like the look of this.  Especially the vertical gradient instead of a horizontal one.



Zoya Cosmo is the only one of the Mega Pixie Polishes that I truly love.  The others that I own are either too chunky or have too much of a jelly base that they don't really come together and the textured effect becomes lost.  This one is a true mixture of the original formula with some larger holo flecks.  Gorgeous, but a pain in the butt to remove.


China Glaze Let's Jam is from the new China Glaze Lite Brights collection.  My Sally Beauty Supply didn't get the whole collection in so I picked up only a few that I really wanted.  Still sad that I couldn't get my hands on the blue, green, or yellow, but oh well.  Let's Jam is a gorgeous neon purple with a blue shimmer.  You can't really see the shimmer in the gradient, but you can in the bottle.  I did swatch it for another manicure that I'll be posting soon and you really see it there.

What do you think?  Fan of this look?  Loving any of these polishes!

Until next time, <3.
