Bombshell Gradient

Hi lovelies!

Happy Hump day!

I apologize in advance for the quality of these pictures.  I did these nails before heading out to my in laws camper for the weekend and had to take the photos there.  I was surrounded by three little girls and well.. these aren't my best photos!


  

 
I started off with a base of GOSH Deep Purple which is a beautiful blackened purple creme.  I then added a thin coat of Finger Paints Twisted 3/4 of the way down the nail, then sponged the tips with Orly Bubbly Bombshell to create the gradient.   I loved the look of the flakies and glitter on the dark base.  My accent nails have none other than three thin coats of Bubbly Bombshell.  Such a gorgeous glitter! 


What do you all think of accent nails?  I started doing accents maybe 4 or 5 years ago and I can't seem to stop :)

  3. This is gorgeous! Pinks and purples are my favourite colours. As for accent nails, I like them more on other people than I do myself.

    1. I feel the same way about matte nails, I like them more on others than I do myself. Strange how that works!
