The One With the Holographic Gradient Accent Nail

Nothing to Disclose 

Good morning Polished World, and welcome to 2021!  I'm happy to see 2020 leave, but let's face it the years are only what you make of them.  I look back on 2020 and despite all the hardships, I'm very grateful for the year.  Sure, with my line of work I could look and be all woe is me and hate on 2020, but I'm not going to.  That's not going to get me or any of us anywhere if we choose to look at the negative.  So let's all go into 2021 looking at only the positives and how the negatives were just there to help us grow.

Today's post is a draft from before Christmas.  I did it shortly after Halloween as a palate cleanser from all the orange, greens, and purples.  You can never go wrong with mint and silver holographics.  Plus a glitter gradient?  This manicure is simple and perfect.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • Jessica Cosmetics - Flower Crown
  • ORLY - White Tips
  • ILNP - Mega X
Isn't this gorgeous?  I love how Mega X looks over White Tips.  In my last post, I used ILNP Versailles for a glitter gradient and it worked just as wonderfully.  I'm on a gradient kick because the design I painted last night has the Mega X gradient again.  You'll see that post in a few days.  I just think it's the perfect accent to any manicure.

Flower Crown is one of my favorite polishes.  It applies perfectly in two coats.  You technically could get away with one coat of this beauty, but you know me, I have to have at least two.  I've tried going the one coat route, but it feels like my nails are still naked.  Is that weird?  I feel that's weird.

What do you think?  Fan of this look? 

Until next time, <3.
