Hi Y'all!!! I have to tell you, it is amazing that I am even here today and not dead from fright! As you may have read on my facebook page, I have a deep seeded, gigantic, incomprehensible fear of green hoppy things (fr*gs to everyone else who isn't scared). So as I leave my bedroom this morning, I look down and in the hallway, there is a dead green hoppy thing!!!! Yes I should be happy that it was dead, but you know what? That didn't make me any less terrified!! The horror, the horror! Thank you to the now-a-teen for getting it out of the house. Although she only did it after finding out I wasn't going to leave my room and take her to dance as long as it was there. The horror, the horror!!
Anyway, somehow I did survive and I have a fabulous, easy mani for you today! It is a glitter gradient:
Orly- Harmonious Mess
OPI- Pink Yet Lavender
Just to let you know, pictures do not do OPI Pink Yet Lavender justice. But let me start with Orly Harmonious Mess. Harmonious Mess is a beautiful periwinkle blue crème that is just so pretty. I took the now-a-teen to dance while wearing only the Harmonious Mess and received compliments everywhere I went. The pictures show two coats, which went on perfectly. The formula was perfect!
Then for the gradient, I used OPI Pink Yet Lavender. Oh my goodness!!! This is such a fabulous glitter!!! It is a clear based polish with micro holographic glitter and medium sized hexagon pink/lavender colored glitter. And it really is Pink yet Lavender. I couldn't pin point which color I thought it was. I do know that it's gorgeous and I love it!!
Start the gradient with one coat of OPI Pink Yet Lavender (or what ever color glitter you choose) over the entire nail. For the next coat, paint only 2/3 or your nail and for the final coat, paint only 1/3. You can start from either the tip of your nail (like I did on my ring finger), or from the cuticle (like the rest of the nails). Finally, add one coat of top coat. I hope you enjoy today's mani. For me, I think it's time for wine! Or a pina colada! Happy Polishing!!
