Hello everyone !
So today I’m back with a very simple nail-art using some of the recent Enchanted Polish polishes. Yeah I know, Enchanted Polish, again … But it’s for the same reason than when I shared so many manis with OPI nail polishes from the Hawaii collection ! I just received these shades and they’re here sitting on my desk calling to be used. I noticed that almost every time, when I receive my Enchanted Polish orders, I swatch them, and then almost immediately put them with the rest of my collection. I’m feeling like I don’t use them enough, maybe because I’m trying to preserve them, but I’m willing to change that.
Just before receiving the Enchanted Polish latest shades, I received my latest monthlies order : Mars 2015, April 2015 and May 2015. I’ve never been disappointed when ordering my monthlies, and I really like this concept. Basically, I’d buy anything from Enchanted Polish blindly. Anyway. When I opened May 2015 I was so happy. Finally a deep blue shade lighter than Presto Magic and darker than December 2014. And when I received Daydream one day after, I knew these two would be perfect for a gradient nail art !
Obviously, they look pretty great together, right? I could have added a little bit of Presto Magic to darken these gradient nails, but I love it that way. These two colors are enough for a gradient ! So how did I do that. First I applied one single coat of Daydream to have a nice aqua blue base.
Then I protected my nails with liquid latex, I used Liquid Palisade. Honestly, it’s great and I love it but keep your money and try to find something cheaper. This one is so expensive (22$ the 0.35oz) and it’s basically liquid latex that you can easily find on Amazon or eBay. I mean, it’s even more expensive than the Make For Ever liquid latex… crazy right? Personally what I did is that I poured some white liquid latex in an empty nail polish bottle that I had rinsed, and that basically makes the trick. You can add glitters or colorant to it, as you like :)
So back to the nails, with a makeup sponge I created the gradient using May 2015 and Daydream. These shades are pretty opaque so you’ll only need to go over like 2 to 3 times to have the same result as me. Then I removed the latex, cleaned a little more and added one coat of Djinn in a Bottle to give it an even more holo look :D And then top coat.
I knew that this kind of gradient nails would need to be stamped, so I took the Fashionista n°5 plate by MoYou-London, my Konad special black for stamping and I stamped ! Pretty easy but I really love how this mani looks !
I finished with my top coat. I don’t know why I try to preserve these EP‘s so much. I mean it’s too bad, right? For those of you who have EP‘s do you do the same ? Or am I the only crazy one here ? :D
Thanks for reading gals ! ❤
