The One with the Dream Catcher Nail Art

Good morning polished world! Hope you are all doing fabulously.  I just woke up, looked outside, and there is snow on the ground....again.  Right after it was all melted and it seemed to be getting warmer, we get snow.  Oh well, it could be worse.

Since I'm not feeling too Springy, I'm sharing a not so Spring like manicure I did a few weeks ago.  I recently purchased the Color Club Neon Pastel Poptastic Polishes from HB Beauty Bar because they've been on my wish list forever.  They had a great price and a coupon, so how could I say no?  Anyways, I was dying to try a gradient with them because I've seen so many bloggers create subtle beautiful gradients.  Of course though that gradient needed something over it, so I went with a dream catcher since I've never done that type of nail art.

Let's take a look.

Colors Used:
  • Orly - Liquid Vinyl
  • Orly - Mirrorball
  • Color Club - Meet Me at the Rink
  • Color Club - Under the Black Light
  • Color Club - Hot Hot Hot Pants

This post reminds me I need to grab a back up bottle of Orly Liquid Vinyl.  The two I've had for over a year now both are deciding they don't want to be nail polishes anymore.  Which is alright with me since I'm close to the end of the bottle.  By far my favorite black polish out there.

Let's also talk about how my beloved Mirrorball was added to the permanent collection at Sally Beauty Supply which thrilled me because I could get a bottle whenever I wanted.  Only to have my dreams shattered a few weeks ago when I walked in the store and noticed they did a reset to bring in a line of Seche Vite polishes and they discontinued Gumdrop and Mirrorball.  Lucky for me I was able to buy 4 back ups at $2.99.  Still though, kind of hate not having my back up in the store available just in case something happens to mine.  If you don't have this polish, I highly suggest you go find it because it's wonderful.

The Color Club polishes are just fabulous.  Would I use them for a gradient again?  Probably not.  They took awhile to become opaque over the white base.  I think I had to paint the sponge four times to get what I did for this design.  I swatched them on a nail art wheel and they have beautiful application, which negates a lot of reviews I read online.  Maybe they reformulated them?  Who knows.

Regardless, I think my dream catcher is on point.  I'm so proud of it.

What do you think?  Fan of this design?  Do you like the Color Club polishes?

Until next time, <3.
