Another weekend over in the blink of an eye. Did you have a good one though? Did you have a good valentines day?
I am actually quite exhausted so I hope you will excuse me if I don’t chat too much. It’s hot (please hurry up winter) and I am tired and my todo list is still very long. So to jump straight to the nail art, this originally started as another idea but as plans changed I decided to go a different route. So let me show you.
I started with 2 coats of China Glaze – Capacity to see beyond and left that to dry completely. Once it was dry I used a sponge to do a gradient using China Glaze – Capacity to see beyond and China Glaze – History of the world. They both worked so well together and I loved the result. I almost wished I had left it as is but instead I stamped over that using China Glaze – Adore and BM509. I then topcoated it all and that was that.
I really liked the gradient. I am not sure if the stamping did it any favours but it isn’t too bad. What do you think? These two blues are so ridiculously gorgeous. Let me show you some swatches.
China Glaze – Capacity to see beyond.
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. I know this colour was very coveted when it just came out as part of The Giver collection and I can see why. It is a beautiful light but bright blue. Very nice formula and decent opacity. I almost wish I had used this one sooner. Beautiful.
China Glaze – History of the world
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. Also part of The Giver collection and boy did this exceed my expectations. I wore this for a while when I swatched it and I actually got quite a few compliments on just this plain colour. It is a beautiful dark blue creme with a really shiny finish. It was a bit sheer on the first coat and it had me a bit concerned but on the second coat it was pure perfection. This is definitely a favourite and I am looking forward to the cooler months so I can wear it more often.
What do you think of these 2 blues? Do you have a favourite? I think they gradient together so well too.
Thanks for reading,
