Blue Week - Sponged Gradient

Nail Fun


Hi Goddesses – happy weekend!

I have wanted to do a gradient for a while and a sponge mani for a while and I combined them on this for Blue Week. 

Now, I am not a “neat” person, so I have to find ways of making things look a little less perfect but as if that was my intention all along!  I knew I didn’t want precision, but I’m not sure if I made the right decision with the tips – sometimes I think they look cool, like waves, othertimes I think they just look like a 5yr old did them!

So, I used – CHINA GLAZE Luna as my base.  Luna is an amazing silvery pale blue with holographic sparkles in it.  I am going to be using this a lot I think as we veer into winter, as it’s the perfect colour for iciness.  I hoped that in using it, some of the glitter would peek through the other layers, and it does – JUST.  It also makes the whole thing look a little rough – I’m going to pretend that was my intention as the sea is a little choppy and frothy J

It’s then got 2 layers of ZOYA Jo and 1 layer of ZOYA Indigo. 

I used the sponge eyeshadow brushes – they gave me quite a high degree of flexibility and were great if I needed to touch little bits up.

Now, this post is quite unique, as it features the Rarely Seen Full Paw Shot lol.   I don’t usually show my whole hand, but I did like how this mani looked at a distance.

Overall I was quite pleased with – definitely room for improvement though ha ha

Enjoy your weekend, whatever you’re doing J

Top Tip – if you’re ever unsure what a nail colour looks like, go to Google images, which will give you plenty of contrasts and compares.
