Gradient & Texture

Hello everybody! Today I have a design that I quickly came with, I just sort of grabbed a bunch of polishes and went to work. Everyone knows I love gradients so of course I wanted to do one for this mani. I bought new triangle sponges a while ago and this was the first time using them. They were only a cheap pack of 30 or so from K-Mart but they were much better to use than the one I previously had which were thicker. So I was very, very happy with my gradient. I could have done a third coat to make it that little bit more opaque, but I was happy either way. 

I originally had the glitter that's on my thumb on my middle finger as well, but I felt it didn't quite match in so I was a little lazy and only changed the middle one instead of both. Also, I picked up some of the Face of Australia Carnivale polishes for $2 each a while ago and straight away I didn't like them. I think it was because I had such a bad experience with the Sally Hansen textured polishes that I was indifferent towards these ones, but a quick base of white polish underneath made me love this polish, so I look forward to using the rest of them!

It was an off day for editing, can you tell?

Polishes used:
Manic Panic - Australis
Avenue Maintain - Essie
Bubblegum Pink - Sally Hansen
Mango Slurpee - Face of Australia

I love this mani and I want to create more designs with the textured polish. I never knew I would love it so much. I think I like it because it's not so heavily textured and uncomfortable, it's nice and light and can be used easily in designs.


  1. Such a cute mani. This colors combination looks amazing :)

  2. Beautful mix! That's all I like the most - gradient and dots:)
