Zoya Charla + Gradient Nail Art

Hey there!

My manicure for today, I pretty much outright copied from a fellow blogger. But I liked it so much I couldn't help myself! And I will go ahead and say that I love her version many times more than mine! My inspiration for this comes from Jacki at Adventures in Acetone. She has fabulous ideas, and if you aren't following her yet, ya should be!! :)

I loved the idea she had to do a blue/purple gradient...especially with these Zoya colors in matching finishes it really spoke to me...so I used Charla for my base. This is one of my very first Zoyas and this baby is still sparkly and pretty as ever! 

I love the greenish shimmer it has!

Next, I sponged Zoya Julianne at the tips into a gradient. I like that sponging allows for mistakes because it still looks good even when imperfect (like mine!). After the gradient was finished, I topped it off with Ozotic 528, a pink/blue/green color shift glitter topcoat. Again, I have to give credit to Jacki for this genius combo! It may not look like much here, but it adds just the right amount of sparkle to these colors that is just perfect.

And finally, I used Wet n Wild Silvivor to stamp in this marbly type design. I was happy with how this all turned out and loved the overall look.

Jacki, if you are reading this I hope you don't mind I used some of your ideas! Thanks for having such a great blog to get inspiration from! :)
