Look at me! I keep attempting nail art! This was my first attempt at a gradient, it's not terrible, but I don't love it. Don't they always say that you are your own worst critic? ;-)
Anyways, after my base color finally dried, I painted two thick lines on my handy dandy make up sponge. For this mani I choose Zoya's Sweet and Morgan. I dabbed the sponge and still wet paint onto my finger nails to transfer the color over. Before they dried, I did a quick coat of ORLY's Shine on Crazy Diamond. Partially to blend the colors together, but mostly because I adore the light sparkling of holo glitter that it gives.
Finally, I drew a line of nail glue down my ring finger and stuck on my awesome Born Pretty Store nail studs that I love. The glue dried kind of quickly so my studs ended up a little crooked, but I thought they still looked cool.
I topped the whole thing off with a thick layer of Sally Hansen's Insta Dry and called it a night.
