Grrrrrreat! Manicure

Howdy, everyone!  We're back around to another weekend already.  Is it just me or does it feel like this summer is passing by in a blur?  Or a blaze, more like, with as hot as it's been!  I love living in Chicago, but it does feel like the summers get shorter every year.

I have a fun manicure for you today.  Let's get to it!

I started here with two coats of Sinful Colors Let's Meet, a mustard yellow shimmer.  Over that, I sponged on some Nina Ultra Pro in Molten Gold which is a pretty orange-y pink to gold duochrome.  To finish the gradient, I applied just a bit of Sinful Colors Timbleberry to the very tips of my nails with a sponge.  Timbleberry is a deep coral pink creme which almost verges on neon.  After a coat of Seche Vite, I wore just the gradient for a day, but it just didn't seem like it was finished.  The gradient seemed like it was waiting for something, it just felt like a background.  So, I decided an animal print was in order and what better print to go with than tiger stripes for an orange/yellow gradient?  With my black nail art striper polish, I painted on some stripes.  I think it completes the manicure nicely, don't you?  It's definitely more eye-catching this way!

As always, thanks so much for stopping by!  I hope you enjoyed my post :)

    1. Howdy and thanks! The great part about this manicure is that it's very easy to substitute different colors. I'd love to see a pic when you try it out!
