Pastel Gradient

Wow. It feels great to be blogging again. My post real post was in February. Since then, I have been super busy working ridiculous hours at work. Despite not blogging, I still painted my nails every day.

It's Friday and it's Great Gradient Friday in one of my nail communities!!!! And it's the long weekend (it doesn't matter to me, I work 15 hours on Sundays).

So as of now, I am sure everyone has seen the amazing gradient tutorial The Nailasaurus has done. Well, The Swatchaholic did an amazing nail gradient using Illamasqua pastels. I had to try it. I had all colors minus Wink so I used Essie Lilacism.

Colors Used:
Illamasqua Blow
Illasmasqua Caress
Illasmasqua Nudge
Essie Lilacism

Can I just say that I loooove the colors?!? It's absolutely amazing! My nails didn't come out as perfect as The Swatchaholic but I'm happy with it. I do need to get a different sponge. I have been using a makeup sponge and it leaves parts of it on the nail. I might just try using a kitchen sponge!

 I have to get back into the swing of things again. My lightbox got destroyed and I need to clean up my nails a bit better. With that being said, I am so happy with blogging again. I love my blog layout. Thank you to Sarah from Chalkboard Nails who gave my blog a very much needed makeover. I love my new name. Everything has been just so exciting! 

So until tomorrow!
