Tuesday's Talons

Currently watching: Everybody Loves Raymond

Good morning girls! I hope you all had a lovely Christmas and that Santa was good to you ;-)

Today I'd like to show you my first gradient manicure:

My first step was to use two coats of E.L.F Pearl as my base.

I then sponged on a lilac Wibo shade.

Next I sponged on 332 by Kiko and finally a dark purple Miss Sporty shade. It was supposed to be a purple gradient but the lilac looked pink and the dark purple looked navy...

In an attempt to rescue the manicure, I used a glitter topcoat with silver moons and stars in it.

This wasn't a total success but I think it's a fair attempt for my first gradient manicure. What do you think? And did you get any nice polishes from Santa?

Bye for now,


  1. Ooo pretty!!! :D Loving the colours you used for this!

  2. I think it turned out nicely :-) I love the colors!

  3. Colors are lovely! Very cute design.

  4. First off: The colors you chose work perfectly together! Just beautiful :)
    The sponging looks awesome too! I never manage to create a good gradient..it's really hard isn't it ? Nevertheless I love this manicure!
