Day 13 Pre-Spring Challenge Contest Sponging

1

Ta da! Here is my sponge/gradient/ombre manicure. Big exhale! I will be trying to incorporate more sponging in future manicure now that I’m no longer afraid of it! I taped up my cuticles and started with a white base coat, Essie’s blanc. I used a make-up sponge and dabbed it up and down a bit to get a better blend. I like how it turned out. I used three shades of purple but I’m not sure if you can clearly see that. Hopefully you can! The challenge is almost and I’m gonna miss it! I’m really glad I joined in on it!

Day 11 Pre-Spring Challenge Contest Beach

I did it, I finally did it! I nailed gradient nails! Yay!!! It’s taken me MONTHS!! This makes me so glad I decided to do this challenge! Thanks again to Posh Alcoholic  and Mommy Loves Nail Polish for setting this up! I watched a great video on you tube on how to do this manicure and I just followed it step by step. I also checked out this great step by step picture tutorial created by my friend Lekker Lacquer here. I used a make up sponge for the gradient instead of the black nail art sponges I previously used. Then I used my thin black nail art polish and drew on the palm trees. And now, with these nails, I feel I need to be holding a cocktail! 🙂 DSC_2937 DSC_2940

For this look I used Sally Hansen Lightening, OPI Strawberry Margarita, and OPI Red Lights Ahead. . . Where? and a black thin brush polish to draw on the palm tree.

Day 5 Pre-Spring Challenge Constest Sky

1

So far this is my fav mani of the challenge. I started off doing daytime skies then decided night was better. These remind me of my galaxy nails but I think these are more subtle. I sponged the clouds on. I dabbed glitter polish over them to make them seem a little more shiny.

Here’s what I used, Essie, ‘blanc’, Ciate, Powerdressing, Face It light blue  polish. Sally Hansen’s Something Blue for the glittery effect on the clouds. 2 3 4 5 6best
