#52weeknailchallenge: grey + blue

Looking forward at the challenge I realised that someone really likes blue, as blue is in three of the prompts. Starting with this, grey and blue. Luckily it's two colours that go rather well together. 

I started with two coats of Hean City Fashion 169 on my thumb and two coats of CF 172 on my pinky. The rest of my nails has a coat of Ulta3 lily white. I didn't bother with it being too opaque as I was planning on a gradient. My lily white is almost finished, does anyone have any tips on how to get that last bit of polish from the bottle?? I hate wasting and knowing there's still polish in kinda annoys me.
I did the gradient on my index, middle and ring fingers using CF 169 and 172. I painted the polishes at an angle on the sponge hoping for a angle gradient? I don't even know what that is.... Anyway, just a quick look at the gradient before I went crazy on it.
Once my gradient was dry I added a coat of Hean Stardust 265. It has small and large hexagonal glitters in black and blue. I really like how it looked on the gradient. I then stamped an image from BP-017 with Nicole Diary black stamping polish. I wanted to use this image for so looooooong and now I finally did.
Once that was done I added a dot of essence crack is back in the centre of all the flowers, top coated and that's it.
What do you think? I think I should have left the stamping off, but I had my heart set on using this image. Or maybe the stamping without the glitter topper? Is there a rule of thumb as to when to use glitter topper's? 

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Love it, especially with the stamping! I'm not sure about the glitter as I love the image by itself but it does fit the colors and the design so it doesn't look weird at all :)
    Oh, and the rule of thumb: if you want to use it, add it ;)

  2. It looks elegant and eye catching, everything works fantastic together. Love it!
