The Nail Files: Girly Gradient

Happy Friday! I've been having internet problems at home all day, and the guy won't be out to fix it until Sunday... very crappy. I was so excited to post this manicure, too. All is well, though- I'm at my best friend's house using her internet! ;D It was pretty quiet at work earlier so I managed to do this manicure at work. At first I thought it looked really bad but then I fell in love with it. Check it out!

 I got a pedicure today! OPI Danke-Shiny Red! from the Germany collection- stunning!

What I used for this manicure was three coats of Catrice Just Married and a sponged glitter gradient of China Glaze I'm Not Lion. This is one of my favorite manicures I've done in a while... but I feel like I say that every time I do my nails. I just really like glitter gradients. They're a really easy way to add a touch of class to a mani. 

Just Married was really spotty. The formula was great but the polish was sheer and hard to build up. Three coats was ok but I don't think it would've looked good enough to do on its own. I bought this polish from a blog sale mainly for the name- it reminds me of the Ashton Kutcher movie, Just Married. Mmm, mmm, mmm. Ashton will forever be my fave. As for I'm Not Lion, I freaking LOVE this polish. Definitely one of my favorites for 2012. Don't you agree?

Also... I'm planning to participate in the 31 Day Challenge! You may see the first post back-dated for a few reasons.. 1 being how much I love this manicure & I don't want to take it off, 2 being that my internet will be down until Sunday. Here's the template for the challenge!

A bunch of bloggers are participating and I'm excited. Hopefully I'll be able to keep up! Like I said, be on the lookout for my first post on Sunday. Will you be joining me?!


  1. This is so pretty! I love that pink & gold together like that.

  2. Wow that looks so pretty. Very dainty.
