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.
