Monday Blues Gradient

Good Evening! 

How are you all doing today? Was your Monday Blue? Mine was crazy busy!! I had class alllll day and then found out I was being offered a Teaching Assistant position this term! Yay me! So my Monday was anything but blue. 

For todays nails I tried the gradient method by Sammy from The Nailasaurus. I used Sally Hansen's Blue Me Away and Essence's Walk on Air. My base was Walk on Air.

I apologize for my nasty looking middle finger. I had a rip that I tried to repair with nail glue, but it didn't work out so well. It looked better IRL, and I didn't notice how bad the pictures were until I went to edit these!

Then I took GOSH's Blue Monday and added some glitter to the tips! I figured since it was named Blue Monday I HAD to use it in this mani some how :)

Then I wanted to have some sort of an accent nail and grabbed some of my chrome stripers and created a feather on my ring finger!

I really liked the feather, but wish it had looked less subtle. 

What do you think of my Monday Nail Blue gradient? How do you like the feather?

I know this post is quick, but I have to finish writing a work term report that is due tomorrow! Just a little bit left to finish :)

I hope you are all having a great Monday!

Sincerely Stephanie

  1. This is really pretty =) to do the gradient did you use a make up sponge? I've tried it once myself but it didn't work out as blended as I'd have liked xo
