Blue Textured Gradient Manicure

Hiya, all!  I hope everyone had a great weekend.  I've got a fun little manicure for you guys today so without further ado, let's get to it!

I started here with 2 coats of Julie G's Frosted Gumdrops in Rock Candy.  Then I grabbed my trusty sponge and dabbed on Julie G's Frosted Gumdrops in Blueberry Fizz and Zoya's Liberty.  This gradient turned out so pretty!  The colors work together really nicely, I think.

I know not everyone loves the texture trend, but I fall more in love with them every time I wear them.  I'm definitely doing a July 4th mani with Liberty...she's just the most beautiful sparkly blue!

You might notice that my pinkie suffered a little breakage mishap.  How do you guys feel about trimming back ALL of your nails when you break one?  I just can't bring myself to do it!  I spent so many years with nubbins because I bit my nails with a vengeance that I just can't cut them short voluntarily.  I hope my shorty pinkie doesn't look too bad and that he grows swiftly!

This is a big week so please swing back by.  A quick reminder that Google Reader has gone bye-bye, so follow me over at Bloglovin'!  You don't want to miss my last ABC Challenge post, especially as it will contain a little surprise!

Thanks for reading!


  1. I love this texture gradient.I've been wondering though, since they dry faster than other polishes, how is it possible to get such a great result ? Tutorial maybe? Pretty please? :-)

    1. Hi, Nathalie!
      Thanks for your comment. It's really just the same process as with a regular gradient, but I'll try to get a tutorial up for it in a few days. Thanks for the suggestion :)
