Creative musings in bright colors

Star Sapphire

Gem day! Well, technically, jewel. I thought about doing the awesome gemstone/rupee nails (a-la-Chalkboard Nails) again, but quickly vetoed it when I came upon this lovely bit of nail art by The Dalai Lama Nails. Circular gradient! Star sapphire! Oh yes.

I’ve never tried a circular gradient before…but after this I am defiantly doing it again! I wish I had taken a photo before I added the star-lines. You can’t see almost any of the lightest blue color because it is in the center, but it was a rather cool effect!

On a random note, it’s kinda fun that Dalai Lama Nails has a sapphire engagement ring to! although hers is purple sapphire…so different color but still cool. Non-diamonds unite!

I am getting a lot of use out of Tart! When I first got her, I was disappointed that she wasn’t a deeper metallic (like the red Isla or the green Holly), but I like her now! She’s in tomorrows mani too 😀
