Dragon Scales

Hi everyone!  I was reorganizing my arsenal, and I came across my A England polishes.  It dawned on me that I hadn't used them lately, so I decided to do an A England gradient!


I started off with two coats of A England Princess Sabra, a gorgeous golden olive scattered holographic.  I followed it with one coat of SV.


Using a basic wedge sponge, I created a light to dark gradient with A England Princess Sabra, Dragon, and St. George.  I followed with one coat of SV.


For a very small accent, I paired Konad Special Black with Mash plate Mash-39 for the scale pattern on my pinkie nails.  I finished with one coat of SV over the stamping.


I am absolutely, positively crazy about the end result.  I cannot stop looking down at my nails!!!  


I was so excited to see the sun peek out, so I grabbed my little Speak No Evil dragon and stepped out into the sunlight.



 I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!




Colors: A England Princess Sabra, Dragon, and St. George, Konad Special Black

Stamping Plate: Mash-39
