Today I have my attempt at nail art, a gradient. I added an extra dose of special by adding a holo topcoat. The polishes used here are:
- Essie Using My Maiden Name
- China Glaze Fancy Pants
- Kawaii Let It Shine Holo Topcoat
So, to achieve this look, I first applied two coats of Essie Using My Maiden Name and one coat of HK Girl topcoat.
I used a piece of a makeup sponge to add China Glaze Fancy Pants to the tips. I sponged on both Fancy Pants and Essie Using My Maiden Name to achieve a more blended look:
Finally, I added Let It Shine holo topcoat:
Love the look. I know I'll be doing more gradients, especially with pretty spring colors. The gradient may look intimidating but it does get easier as you try...or, in my case, add some holo topcoat to help mask any mistakes you may make!
You can find Kawaii Nail Lacquer - for amazing holo topcoat and more:

And you can find Essie and China Glaze at major retailers, including Essie at some pharmacies and Ulta (right?) and CG at Sally's. You can get both online as well.
