Cheshire Blues Vants To Bite My Nude Neck






Today I have a glitter-topped gradient to show you.





I started with Essence Nude Or What? (Seasons Of Extremes Limited Edition), a pale smoky lilac creme. I used two coats, which weren't completely opaque, but as I intended to sponge over it, I didn't add a third.





As a next step, I took a make-up sponge and created a gradient using Nude Or What? on the tips and OPI Vant To Bite My Neck? (Euro Centrale Collection) at the base. Vant To Bite My Neck? is a dark grape colored creme. The gradient looks a little coarse on my pictures, but that's just my macro lens showing everything super sharp. IRL it looked pretty soft.





And as you probably know, I love to add a little "bling" to my manis, so I dabbed on one coat of ILoveNailpolish Cheshire Blues, "a heart stopping combination of purple, fuchsia, and light teal glitters punctuated with just the right amount of tiny pink hearts!"

I had no issues with the application of Cheshire Blues, even the hearts came out of the bottle willingly. I finished with one coat of Nail Pattern Boldness Glitter Food and one coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dri for a glassy finish.













ILoveNailpolish are available on Etsy and at their own shop.

    1. Thank you! I'm usually not a "bling" person, except for nail polish. There it can't be "bling" enough ;-)

    1. Thank you. Melissa! I can only recommend ILNP, I've got a lot of polishes by this brand, and I'm happy with all of them. The older ones stink quite a lot, but now she changed the suspension base she uses, and they're not supposted to stink anymore :-)

    1. Thank you! ILNP don't discontinue their polishes too often, so I'm sure you'll get another chance to lay your hands on Cheshire Blues :-)
