Creative musings in bright colors

Aztec Sunset

I have a secret folder of pinterest pins that I turn to for nail art ideas. And by “secret folder” I mean “I like them instead of pin them elsewhere”. Today’s manicure comes straight from one of these secret pins!


I absolutely loved the gradient design by rubyrominaa on IG. I didn’t want to use the same colors, so I pulled out a fun gradient of my own featuring three pink-to-deep-red shimmer polishes over rose gold. Because…why not?



  • Gold: Essie – Penny Talk
  • Pink: Pure Ice – Raspberry Ice
  • Medium red-pink: OPI – Cute Little Vixen
  • Dark red: Confetti – Masquerade Ball


I forget how much I love doing gradients with metallic polishes! They are SO MUCH FASTER than using cremes. Although they are a bit harder to get off the surrounding finger!


By far the hardest part of this mani was placing 14+ pieces of striping tape per nail. But the end result was totally worth it! I might have to try this again with a green-blue pallet 🙂
