The One Inspired by Jewelry for Twinsie Tuesday

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world!  It's Tuesday which means it is time for another Twinsie Tuesday!  I'm sad to say that after this post I'm going to be taking a brief break from the Twinsie Tuesday group.  I've been a bit busier with things and I can't seem to keep up on the blogging schedule.  So in order to get my head above the water, taking a break seems to be the best solution.  I should be back though in a month or so if all goes well!!

This week we are sharing manicures that are inspired by jewelry.  My goal for this week was to bring you an Easter manicure each time I posted so I wanted to think of something Easter-y for this theme.  I thought out of the box and remembered my variety of cross necklaces.  What's more perfect for an Easter manicure than being inspired by the cross?!

So I decided to take inspiration from my nail art wheel, and recreated a little shadow scene of Calvary.  Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • OPI - Rich Girls and Po Boys
  • Orly - Frolic
  • China Glaze - Flip Flop Fantasy
  • INM - Northern Lights
I love how the sunset gradient turned out.  It really looks like the early Spring sunsets that I've been seeing the last few weeks.  The gradient was very bright at first, but I learned a little trick from The Nail Trail.  After I sponged the gradient on my nails, I added some white polish to the sponge and dabbed it over the gradient.  It made the bright colors turn to a beautiful pastel shade.

So since I was trying to make my nails look like a dusky sunset, I decided to add a top coat of my favorite holo glitter, INM Northern Lights.  When that was dry, I went through with my nail art brush and acrylic paint and drew my little scene.  Such a simple manicure...liking it a lot!

What do you think?  Fan of the gradient?
