12 Days of Christmas Challenge: Ice, ice, baby blue


Hey all! Today's prompt was actually 'Icy blue and white'. I stopped with icy blue... I was thinking: ahhh silver glitter, that counts as white, right? RIGHT. And that is it. :-D. So, hereby I present: my ice, ice, baby blue silver glitter gradient nails! There is more after the jump.




I regret that my camera and photo setup are not really good at capturing holographic goodness. But you can see the shinyness in the blurred parts of the pictures!


Polishes and glitter used for this manicure:
Faby - Don't disturb my Puppy
Essence - Hello holo
Born Pretty Store - Silver hex holographic glitter

I created the gradient by applying Hello holo on a cosmetic sponge and dabbing that onto my nail. Just repeat that step until you got your desired opacity. I also added some bigger holographic glitters for some extra Christmas-y feels.


And there you go, day 5 already! I hope you like it and if you do, then please let me know in the comment section below.
