Day 5: Blue Nails! Now we're talking! I picked up Big Smoke at Ulta's buy one get one free sale on Butter London polishes, so i was dying to try it out.
I also picked up Revlon's Blue Mosaic at Target a few weeks ago, and hadn't tried it either. So what do you get when you combine two new, untried polishes?
Glitter gradient extravaganzaaaaa!!!
What i used: Big Smoke and Blue mosaic.
I think blue mosaic looks a lot like Gone Gonzo from OPI's Muppets collection.
not a dupe by any means but a close enough for me not to need both.
i love the green hex glitter in Blue Mosaic, it reminds me a little bit of DL Across the Universe.
I achieved this look by first painting all my nails with Big Smoke.
Then i painted about 1/3 down my nail with Blue Mosaic.
Next i turned the brush sideways, and patted on the thinner lines going down the nail.
Finally, I went back over the tips with more blue mosaic, to make sure they were very well covered.
I really do like making the glitter gradients. It's even more fun if you sponge on a shimery polish that has some micro glitter in it. yum!
Have you ever done a glitter gradient? what color/glitter did you use. link me!
