Enchanted November & December Gradient

Hey everybody! I’ve done another gradient with the last two Enchanted Polishes I got, November 2014 and December 2014. I think pretty much everyone was happy with these two polishes. All the Enchanted monthlies this past year were mysteries so I was always a little worried if I’d want to hold on to them, but both of these were gorgeous. For this mani I did one coat of December and then sponged on both polishes together. It took about 3 layers of sponging to get the opacity I wanted.

I think I have an obsession with gradient manis, maybe more than water marbling! What shades look best as a gradient to you? I’d love to see your gradient manis too!

Water Marbled Phone Case

I’ve got a special treat for you today! A while back I did a water marbles design on my phone case but I never posted anything outside of a picture on instagram. I decided it needed new colors and this would be the perfect chance to show you a decent picture of it and do a matching mani! I made polishes specifically for this project, with the exception of the black holo which is Power from my Legend of Zelda collection, though you might see a white holo at some point.

And now here’s the phone case with matching nails! I did the same process as a normal water marbled mani but in a larger container. The holo effect didn’t show up too well on the case, probably since it’s flat, so I of course topped it with China Glaze Fairy Dust like I did last time.

What are your thoughts? Would you try something like this? It’s a bit of a pain, especially removing polish off a textured case, but it looks so good!
