ombré with some pizzazz ;)

Good morning!

Today I'm going to show you a mani I did a month or two so ago - but I loved it and want to share it with you!

This is one of my first attempts at a gradient/ombre, and I think it went pretty well! I started with two coats of Covergirl Always Naked.  Once that was dry, I followed this tutorial using 465 Starstruck by 10 Professional Nail Laquer (the dark blue polish you see here).

Following this, I used a toothpick to fish out the turquoise sequins from my awesome Bad Moon Rising glitter polish from lac attack.  One by one, I lined them up at the very edge of my ring fingers for a little bit of added sparkle!


Here is a picture of the gradient without the sequins:

As always, I finished off the manicure with a nice coat of NYC In a New York Minute top coat.

Thanks for stopping by! :-)
