The 31 Day Challenge 2014 - Day 10: Snow in the Sunset

by - Wednesday, September 10, 2014


Keeping it simple today because I literally had two hours to do my nails, photograph them and write up this post. This challenge is definitely keeping me on my toes! For Day 10: Gradient Nails I decided to do a simple gradient with some of the Maybelline Bleached Neons from this summer. Can't ever go wrong with a bold summer sunset-y gradient in my opinion! Add some circle holographic "snow" and we're good to go! I think it's a perfect representation of the ridiculous weather we're having in Canada... I'm pretty sure my cousins out west had snow the other day! Ridiculous! Well Calgary fam, this one's for you. :)


I used three of the Maybelline New York Color Show Bleached Neon polishes to get this look: Pink Punch, Ultra Violet and Day Glow Teal. I loved it like that on it's own, but to add an extra pop I used some circle glitters are from my bottle of OPI I Snow You Love Me to make a small accent on the ring finger.

I don't think I've ever used this OPI polish since it's basically just a bottle of circle glitters you need to individually place, but you can see the gorgeous multidimensional holographic gorgeousness of them in the bottle which is what pulled me into picking it up back in the day. It's one of those polishes I really wish I got more use out of. 

That's it from me for today, but check out all the other gradient fills below!




Are you looking forward to the change of seasons? Do you tend to reflect the seasons in your nail choices? I'd love to hear. :)

Thanks for visiting!!

    1. Thank you! You have to build them up a bit, and for a gradient they definitely need undies (I did them over white, though I see now I didn't mention that in the post - oops!
