I started with two coats of Barielle Myrza's Meadow, a light, grassy green with tiny holographic glitters. The two coats I used weren't quite enough for opacity, if I was wearing it alone, I'd have used three.
Then I added a gradient using a make-up sponge and Barielle Teaser, a medium, slightly teal toned green creme. I'm wearing no topcoat on this picture, that's why the gradient still looks a little coarse (topcoat helps a lot to make a gradient look softer).
For a little "bling", I then added one coat of Orly Mermaid Tale, a clear base filled with green hexes in various sizes and shades (even some holographics), and one coat of Essence Better Than Gel Nails Top Sealer for a smooth finish.
Beautiful mani! I love the gradient you created.ReplyDelete

Ich mag die beiden Lacke, mit denen du den Farbverlauf gemacht hast, sehr. Sieht schick aus!ReplyDelete
Vielen Dank, Wiebke <3Delete
Mal wieder einfach nur toll :)ReplyDelete
Vielen lieben Dank <3Delete
Gorgeous! I also love Barielle Myrza's Meadow by itself <3ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Nati <3Delete
Just perfect!!!! I love that glitter over the gradient - it sort of ties the mani together, right? I have Myzra too but it still sits in my untrieds as I am abit afraid of what I have read about its formula - you had no issues I gather???ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, Christine! No, I've had no issues with Myrza's formula, apart from being pretty sheer. I'd say it takes three to four coats for opacity, at least with my nails.Delete
You probably know by now that I like greens. The all look great together, lovely result!ReplyDelete
Thank you Melissa, I'm so glad you like it <3Delete
I so totally love those close up shots...!ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, I really love them, too :-)Delete
