Shimmer Gradient

Hey there beautiful people!! 

I am so sorry for not posting for a whole week! :( I was crazy busy and I started studying for all my exams in June and I kinda neglected my blog... I think I have to catch up on more than 1000 posts !! =))) That will be fun :D 
I wanna show you the mani I wore for 4 days! Since I took it off on Friday, I had naked nails though. OMG, naked nails!?!?? Yeees, I don't like it either, but I didn't had the time to put on some paint. :P 

Here is the shimmer gradient with purple and turquoise!
I used Catrice - Forget-Me-Not and Avon - Sequined Turquoise. It's not that visible in the photos but in real life the gradient was so much better!! Those two polishes/colors are my absolute favorite ones of all times and I thought I could combine them. I have to tell you though: I wasn't sure at first, if they would go well together. But I was amazed at the end result!! 
I used the sponging technique from Sammy @The Nailasaurus .. that's how it looked before clean-up: 
Pure chaos =)) But after clean-up: 
That's better :P That's also the most accurate picture :) *sigh* I adore it! I could wear this every single day from now on! But I won't .. I have other pretties in my stash that want to be on my nails =)) 

Do you like gradients? What color combos do you like?? 

Have a good night and thanks for reading!! 
*muah*

  14. LOVE. I've been kind of meh about gradients but now I want to recreate this!! Great choice of colors and your nails are sooooo pretty. Are they longer? Yes I'm a nail stalker and slightly obsessed with yours as they are always perfectly shaped.
