ALU-inspired Gradation Manicure

It's been a little bit longer than usual since my last post.  I went to the beach with the boyfriend this weekend and, though I had an awesome manicure, I forgot to take pictures.  Though the Orly Luxe/SH Hidden Treasure combo held up awesomely well through the surf and sand, it was a bit too chipped to show you guys when we got back.  I have something much prettier anyway.  I saw Michelle Mismas' "Quick & Easy" gradation manicure last week and knew that I had to try it myself.  I couldn't wait to attempt it on my own nails.







I didn't intend to use the same colors as she did (I hope to try more combinations in the future!) but Urban Decay Toxin is one of my favorite jelly polishes and I just loved how her manicure looked!  I first polished on two coats of Zoya Charla and then proceeded to follow her method for layering the purple polish on top in four separate layers. I'm pretty happy with how it turned out!  What do you think?

Thanks for reading!

Thanks! I'm trying to think of some new combos, but some of my jellies aren't as jelly-ish as I thought!

What a beautiful look, I love that color combination! I too love gradation manicures, though I sure do need to practice at it.

In the US, we still express this as cubic inches, feet, or yards.

Make sure that you don't end up with a look of patches by checking to see that the glitter falls all the way around the edges of a newly-painted area. Read your warranty carefully, and you'll see that it probably doesn't cover walls with efflorescence.

Pilots complete flights for their airline, using
their simulator,
either online (using a network such as Sim - Miles) or offline, and then
file a pilot report. All of these issues add to the interest that can be
produced about a site and this works for spots in this place and any
place in the world. After February 27, The Sim Online servers
were shut down and it is now known as EA land, old account holders can still come back of course, and its
the same game. If you are running your simulator for commercial purpose and there are people playing with their own golf clubs, ask them to wipe their clubs with a wet clean piece cloth.
In general, it is something manufactured, to pretend to be (or simulate),
something else more valuable.
