Twinsie Tuesday: Seasonal Gradient

Hi everyone, welcome to Tuesday.  Thank you to everyone who left me a nice birthday message, I really did appreciate it!  I wasn't in the best of moods yesterday to be honest.  I had a really bad skin reaction on my face (I think from a new face wash) and it has turned my face into a red rashy reptilian-looking mess.  It's painful, looks disgusting, and won't go away.  That kind of put of damper on things haha!  I am back at work today and we had a snow storm overnight.  Driving this morning scared me because the roads are icy but what can you really do.

Today our theme for Twinsie Tuesday was Seasonal Gradient.  I had a little bit of a struggle with this one because I had so many ideas in my head.  One afternoon I was driving home after work and the sky was the coolest color.  It was mint and sky blue and the clouds were a deep purple and the rest were pink.  I don't think I've ever seen a mint colored sky before, but it was really cool.  That's where the inspiration from this mani came from :)


To create this mani, I started with a base of Essie Absolutely Shore, which is a very pale mint color.  For my gradient, I sponged on China Glaze Fancy Pants and then finished off with a piece of glitter on each nail from OPI I Snow You Love Me.




Don't forget to check out the manis from these other fabulous ladies.  Have a great day everyone!

  14. What a beautiful gradient. I've been wanting to do something similar for a while but I just keep messing up. Gradients are another issue for me that I hope I can overcome.
