Sunset Zebra

Hello! The weather is still on the cold side here but I figured that it's time to bite the bullet and officially stray away from all the spring pastels I've been using. This is a manicure featuring some of the recent glass flecks from Color Club's Take Wing collection for summer. Glass flecks are my guilty pleasure. They're so sparkly and beautiful, I wish I had more of them! And to anyone having trouble with the recent gradient trend, glass flecks are probably the easiest way to achieve the look with a simple sponging method. The semi-opaque colour combined with the ample shimmer allow them to blend into each other flawlessly (:


I painted each nail with Color Club Daisy Does It. Then I proceeded to sponge on Color Club Sparkle and Soar followed by Color Club Wing Fling. To finish I added some quick zebra stripes with a black striping polish.

Have a lovely work week and thanks for stopping by!
