Zigzag Gradient

Today's mani is just a simple used of striping tape, makeup sponge and several bright shades. I'll keep the post short. The shades I used here are OPI Sorry I'm a Fizzy today (very fitting for me today), OPI Where Did Suzi Man-Go?, OPI You are So Outta Lime, OPI Can't Find My Czechbook. Butter London Cotton Bud for the white base, and China Glaze Glistening Snow for the sparkly lines. 







What type of polish or colour do you usually reach to when you want something to brighten the mood?

  1. This is freakin' awesome! You did a great job. Usually when I want to brighten my mood, I reach for a bright polish and a sparkly glitter topper, though I usually do this on my toes. That way when I look down, I perk up!

  2. Nice work! Id I want a manicure to brighten my mood I usually reach for my brightest pink, Lime Crime Pink Parfait. I don't know why pink nails make me happy, because I don't wear pink in anything else.

  7. That's really pretty!! Looks like an aquarello (?). I wouldn't know what I reach for when I am in a bad or sad mood. It usually happens when it's cloudy or rainy outside so I can't reach for my beloved holos to cheer me up. I guess that makes me even more frustrated and I end up going nude (nails) LOL :)
