Tuesday's Talons ft Pink Butterfly Gradient NOTD

Currently listening to: Almost Everything by Wakey Wakey

Hello lovely ladies,

This morning I have a pink butterfly gradient to show you, as the title of this post suggests.

My first step was to create a gradient using Essence Enchanted Fairy, Lm 21 and Barry M Fuchsia:


I then stamped black butterflies using MUA Shade 2 and Konad plate m36.


 Next, I sponged Barry M Pink Iridescent glitter on my nails.  This polish is full of tiny particles of glitter which shimmer in a rainbow of blue, purple, gold, pink and silver.


 My final step was to sponge a heavier glitter, Saffron London Shade 9, on to the tips of my nails.


 The Saffron polish consists of magenta and silver glitter.


Here are the polishes I used:



I was really happy with this manicure although on reflection it might have looked better with grey butterflies so the gradient was more obvious.  Maybe next time!

What do you think girls?

Bye for now,
Laura

    1. Thanks! The worst part was waiting for the pink polishes to dry so that I could stamp. I get a bit impatient ;-)
