Guest Post: Nails and Noms

Here's another guest post for you, this time from Rie from Nails and Noms.

Hey Everyone!

When Bregje asked it I would do a guest post for her blog I jumped at the opportunity! I have been a fangirl of her blog for quite some time. She has killer stamping skills that I can only dream of acquiring some day! And her nails are friggen' flawless! ^_^

I wanted to do something special for her blog. I had recently just created my first gradient nail art as part of the 31 Day Challenge I'm currently doing, and I was excited to have the chance to create another one for Oooh, Shinies!

I like to call this one my "Orange Juice" gradient manicure. The squishy texture of the jelly polish mixed with the shimmer reminds me of a tall glass of ice filled orange juice! ^_^ I started off with a light coat of Y'All Come Back, Ya Hear? by OPI. Then I added another thin coat of YCBYH a little further up my nail. I then sponged on Free Love by China Glaze, Sunset by Sinful Colors, Ruby Rays by Maybelline, and finished the tips of my nails with a light sponging of Wild And Willing by Color Club.

Here's a few macro shots so you can get a closer look at the glitter and flakies. ♥

And here's the polishes I used to create the gradient. ^_^



Thanks for checking out my gradient nails, and a big thank you to Bregje for letting me pop in on her blog! ^_^

What a lovely gradient, and it's a great Fall mani! Note to self: sponge with flakies! Seriously, I never thought of adding those, but it sure looks good =) Thanks for your post Rie! :)

Rie has great swatches and very creative manis, especially now that she's doing the 31 Day Challenge, so make sure to have a look at her blog!
