Deep Sea

Hello! Two nights ago I finally sat down and got all of my blog reading done. I haven't done any other school work but it's nice to say that at least something was accomplished. Going through all of the blogs on my list really takes a lot out of me, so I'd like to say thank you to all of you who frequently read and comment on my blog. Thank you for always taking time out of your day to visit my humble corner of the web :)

Today I have a simple gradient for you. This was my third attempt at a manicure so I settled on something easy. I used one of my neglected polishes, American Apparel Passport Blue. It's actually a very beautiful dark blue with green undertones that can cover in just one coat. I amped it up with a glitter accent using some iridescent teal glitter. This came from the same set of 12 jars of 1mm glitter that I used for Sweet Sorbet, in case anyone was wondering.


I started with American Apparel Passport Blue. I used a makeup sponge to make the gradient with American Apparel Peacock and American Apparel The Valley. I applied a bit of topcoat to the tips of my nails and dipped them into a pot of loose hex glitter, patting it on gently and sealing it with topcoat.

Again, thank you very much for your readership. See you tomorrow for day eight of the geometric challenge!

  3. Aw, thank you! Yes, I agree with you! It's harder to blend such a light colour opaquely into a dark one but the end result is so much more flattering, I think :)

  4. Thanks, Meghan! The loose glitter is a lot thicker and more gritty but it gives really good coverage! :)

  5. Aww, thank you so much! You should definitely try this accent combo out :) I've been playing with different combinations recently and this one is becoming a new favourite.
