Gradient zebra print

Hello lacquered lovelies! Happy Friday, yay! Any plans for this weekend? I work tomorrow and will most likely be doing nothing Sunday... my roommate comes home that night! She's been gone for about a week and a half. I know she needed the visit but it didn't make me miss her any less haha. I'm glad she's coming home... I've slept even less than usual because I've been convinced that someone is going to break in the house. That's a fear that always keeps me up but it's worse when I'm alone... I figure, nobody would know my body was here for days if it's just me here. I know it's irrational, but that's what I think haha!

So, on a less morbid notes, here are some nails I did a few weeks ago. I really wanted a summery animal print manicure so I decided to do a gradient... crazy how things can become insanely popular in just a couple weeks! It's gradient time everywhere, I know, so I hope you're not sick of them already!

I decided to use glass fleck polishes, because nothing says summer like a glass fleck <3 And nobody does glass flecks like China Glaze! I don't know what it is but they have it down to an art. All of my favourite glass flecks are China Glaze, I think! I started out with two coats of Ahoy! (which, judging by the amount I've got left, is one of my favourite pinks ever haha, maybe even one of my favourite polishes ever o.O). Then I sponged some of ChG Senorita Bonita on two thirds of my nails. Once that dried, I sponged ChG Drinkin' My Blues Away on the last third. I got Drinkin' My Blues Away from the lovely Jasmine when she had a blog sale recently! I was so happy about that, it was one of my biggest lemmings... old, chemically, smelly and gorgeous! Maybe I'll feature it on its own in vintage week... :) Then I stamped using Wet n' Wild Black Creme and Konad M57.

I was a bit impatient so I got some smudging when I added topcoat, but I was still pretty happy with these. I got a lot of compliments on them!



That's it from me today! What do you lovelies think? Have you worn any gradient manicures lately? Are you ready for summer yet?

Thanks for reading! Have a beautiful day!

  9. This is beautiful! I just recently got Ahoy (I'm crazy for glassflecks too!) and wondered why it took me so long to get it. It's gorgeous.
