Plum Perfect

Hi everyone!  I wanted to go a little bold today!

Nail Art

I started off with three coats of China Glaze Friends Forever, Right?, followed by one coat of SV.  On the index and ring fingers, I used a wedge sponge for a bold transition gradient with Friends Forever, Right? and China Glaze Crimson.  I followed with one coat of SV.

Nail Art

For the middle and ring fingers, I created a water marble using Friends Forever, Right?, Crimson, China Glaze Sweet Hook, and Picture Polish Attitude.  I finished with one coat of SV.

Nail Art

I really love the final look!  I hope you enjoyed!
Happy Painting!

Faded Quilting

Hi everyone!  I know I've used these two shades together in the past, and I do try to avoid doing that (for whatever crazy reason), but these two polishes are just so amazing together!


I started off with two coats of Color Club Holy Chic!, followed by one coat of SV.


I applied striping tape in a quilted pattern across my nails.  Using a wedge sponge, I added a gradient with Holy Chic! and A England Excalibur Renaissance.  I removed the striping tape immediately after.


For a touch of sparkle, I applied one coat of Northern Lights Holographic Top Coat, and finished with one coat of SV.


I just love the end result!  This might be one of my all-time favorite color combos!!
I hope you enjoyed!  Happy Painting!
