Spring is Swella with Coachella

Hi everyone!  I felt like something colorful and breezy, so here's what I came up with!!

I started off with two coats of Orly Coachella Dweller, a muted pistachio green creme.  The formula is a tad on the thick side and was a bit of a pain to apply, but the colors makes it all worth while!  I followed it with one coat of SV. 

For a little pop color sparkle, I created a glitter gradient with Essie Stroke of Brilliance, a clear coat loaded with multi-sized periwinkle glitters, on all of my nails with the exception of my middle and ring fingers.

For my double accent nails, I paired Essie Nothing Else Metals with Bundle Monster plate BM-322 for the houndstooth design.  I love the pairing of the pale green and metallic purple here!!!

To finish off with a little something extra, I added one coat of Out the Door Northern Lights holographic top coat.  It gave me just enough sparkle to be sweet and subtle!!

I finished off with one final coat of SV, because I have a top coat addiction problem.

I had so much fun playing with these colors today!  I hope you all enjoyed it!!

Happy Painting!
