Pink Flower Gradient

By  |

My nails are getting shorter and shorter and shorter!  Ugh! I swear I’ve been chipping a nail every other day lately.  I literally chipped two yesterday while I was emptying the dishwasher.  Who does that?

So, to make me feel a little better about my ever shorter nails I decided to do a pink flower gradient.  You can never go wrong with a gradient and the stamped flowers just make me smile 🙂

I started with a base of China Glaze Wanderlust.  I’m starting to notice that I have an addiction to this color.  I might just need to buy another bottle because I seem to grab it all the time.

I used China Glaze Heart of the Matter for the hot pink tips and then used Mundo de Unas stamping polish and a MoYou London “The Pro” plate.

It’s good that the weather isn’t hot (or at least I’m deciding that I need a reason to think it’s good) because I can have the window open right now.  The Mundo de Unas stamping polish is AMAZING for getting solid stamped images.  But, the smell is no joke.  Seriously… an open window is clutch with this polish.

Is there a mani that you always gravitate toward when you need a pick-me-up?  I’d love to know!

      Thanks so much! I don’t know why, but I’m always drawn to designs with one color family.

    Your gradient flower mani is beautiful. My go to is dots. They are happy and fun and even I can pull it off without making a total hash of it. 😀

    My nails are down to nubs with all the gardening and cleaning I’ve been doing! 🙁 I love this nail stamp and the colors you chose.

      Thanks so much, Kristina! I really need to take cared of my gardening too. It just hasn’t stopped raining where I live. I suppose that’s been good for my nails!
