Pink and Purple Gradient with a Sprinkling of Fairy Dust

Last week I was crazy excited about my incoming bottle of China Glaze Fairy Dust and now that I have it, I know it was completely justified! It's everything I dreamed of! I've worn it a few times over a plain colour mani but I really think it looks best over nail art. I was so excited to try it over a gradient and I really don't think I could have picked a better colour combo. The two shades I used are really awful polishes on their own - bad brushes and a watery formula - but those are always the ones that are perfect for gradients.

I used Revlon Cloud as my base colour and created the gradient using W7 Baby Pink. Tutorial for that here!

I topped the gradient with one coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust and added some stamping from Bundle Monster Plate BM423 using BK Matt White.

The little unicorn is from She Sells Seashells but seems to be out of stock at the moment.

Finally it's all topped off with a two coats of Glisten and Glow HK Girl with a few extra coats on the unicorn to seal it in.

  19. I love the gradient and the stamping. Why is it that polishes with bad brushes and watery formulae are good for gradients?
