Shimmer Sauce

SO MUCH SHIMMER! Oh god this mani was a mess! I forgot that when you try and make a gradient out of polish with glitter in it, all you get is glitter! Gah! This was supposed to have a pretty pink-purple-blue gradient, and I ended up with a mishmash of gold glitter in the middle! It still looks cool, but it wasn’t what I wanted. Did I mention that this took FOREVER to clean? Glitter?!?!!!!

I wanted to play with some of the matte studs I got off amazon, so I picked two colors that matched some of the new studs, a pink and blue glitter from Mentality. While the shades are beautiful, I think this is the last time I use them for a gradient!

Ok, and totally not related to nail art…I am listening to Pentatnox right now, a somewhat newish a cappella group. And if you haven’t heard their songs, GO LISTEN. They are incredible. All of their covers are actually BETTER than the original songs! *dies*

  1. Pretty!
    Do you listen on Pandora or what, please?

  2. On the other hand (unintentional pun), a holo on holo gradient is amazingly easy, tremendously gorgeous and doesn’t have the ARGHHH clean up job to go with it. I’ve tried a couple and I’m, “Look, I can actually create a gradient!” My current favorite combo is Zoya’s Dream and Aurora.

    Thank you for the turn on to Pentatonix! I just watched their video of Rather Be on YouTube and I’m interested enough to watch/listen to more!

  3. I can only imagine how crap the clean up must have been!! Why dont you try that liquid latex stuff?

  4. Beautiful the design and the colours work so well together
