NOTD: Turquoise Glitter

Essence Choose Me!, OPI Lincoln Park After Dark, Blue and purple art glitter polishes

Gradient nails! For this mani I used Essence's Choose Me!, a gorgeous turquoise glitter flecked with gold, as a base and OPI's Lincoln Park After Dark over the the tips of my nails. I sponged blue and purple glitter polishes across the middle to create the gradient then Seche Vite as a top coat.

Hmm, the pictures came out pretty grainy and its unfortunate that my camera couldn't capture the prettiness of Choose Me!. Other than that, the polishes are quite true to color. All advice on how to take better mani pictures will be greatly appreciated! :)

NOTD: Rainbows Threw up on my Fingers

China Glaze Crackleglaze in Lightning Bolt

I'm not that big a fan of crackle effect polishes anymore, especially the whites - they either look like peeling paint or worse, Wite-out. However, I must say I am absolutely loving Lightning Bolt over mosaic rainbow nails.

7-9 different polishes should make a good rainbow mosaic. Go as crazy as you want with the color choices. Crazy is perfect for this nail-do. ;)

Happy Lunar New Year everyone!
