Holo-Creme Gradient feat. Color Club & OPI

Hello all!  I had originally planned to do an all-holo gradient, but that didn't work out - so I picked OPI Eurso Euro and sponged that over my ready base of Color Club Harp On It.

I absolutely love how this manicure turned out!  Harp On It is an amazing holo and the light/dark holo/creme contrast looked glorious.

Base & top coat:Base - Duri Rejuvacote
Top - KBShimmer Clearly On Top (one coat),
Glisten & Glow HK Girl (one coat)
Polish used:Color Club Harp On It - two coats + gradient
OPI Eurso Euro - gradient

Sunset Water Marble

Hello all!  I wore this lovely sunset water marble recently, trying a different pattern to achieve it.

I attempted the swirly-spiral technique and I think it turned out pretty well!  Of course, the spiral would be more obvious if I dipped every finger separately, but dipping four fingers at once and thumbs separately takes less time and still looks great; plus, each nail looks more unique this way.

As always, these colours worked so well together.  The spiral pattern is one I will definitely be trying again!
