There are so many colors to wear and while I usually rotate different colors and finishes I tend to wear a lot of red shimmers and glitters during the Christmas season. Sparkly reds are such a festive holiday manicure classic and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside wearing them.
Today I wanted to try something different with the two namesakes Color Club Ruby Slippers and Essie Ruby Slippers with adding Essie Ruby Slippers as a subtle gradient over Color Club Ruby Slippers.
To sandwich the sparkly Color Club Ruby Slippers I added one layer of my medium red flakie franken Tartaros to make the glitter gradient of Essie Ruby Slippers stand out more.
Because I was in a rush I just dabbed Essie Ruby Slippers with its brush starting on the tips of my nails up to the almost middle of them.
The removal of this manicure surely won’t be fun. 😀
I am sorry that I am so quiet in the last two weeks. Currently my weekends are all about sleeping and taking naps to recover from the stressful weeks. I have so many swatches, reviews and NOTD which pictures need to be picked, resized and watermarked on my to-do list but instead I am asleep almost all weekend. It makes me so incredibly sad to spend my weekends this way. I just hope this week will be better because I am exhausted. But back to what we all love: nail polish! ♥
Have you tried a gradient before and if yes which one was your favorite?
Thanks for looking and have a great week! ♥
