Guest Post by Polish Nation

Hi readers! I have a guest post from Gina at Polish Nation for your enjoyment today. Even though I don't think my nails look best short like Gina's, I really enjoy looking at blogs with shorter nails. Weird? Maybe, but maybe I'm not the only one out there? haha I am happy have some cute, short nails on my blog today! Enjoy!


Hello! My name is Gina and I am so happy to be guest posting on My Nail Graffiti today! I would like to thank Amber for being so gracious and kind in letting me "take over" her blog for the day. I am the owner of a nail blog, Polish Nation  and I am so excited to share with all of you what I love to do! 

 When thinking of what I should do for this guest post I knew I wanted to do something special but also something that I had done before so it didn't not turn into a complete mess. Last summer I did a cloud design on a blue background which I was very proud of. I decided to take that and make it a little more interesting which is what I have to show you all today. 

I started with a coat of China Glaze's Bottoms Up which is from their new Summer Sensational collection. This polish a light pink neon color with I really liked. It was pretty easy to work with considering it was a neon and it was opaque in 3 coats. Then I decided to add a gradient which turned out much more subtle than I had hoped but I still liked the effect. I used the sponging technique and used Essie's Cute as a Button for the darker color. After that I added my clouds using a dotting tool and Superstar! from Pure Ice. These clouds are so easy to achieve and I love adding them to an old manicure to make it look brand new again! Finally I dotted White Cap from China Glaze on top of the clouds to make them pop a little more. 

Once again, I would like to thank Amber for having me on her blog today and I hope you all liked my post! Please check out my blog http://www.polishnation.blogspot.com if you want to see more of what you saw today!
