Valentine gradient manicure

This mani was originally meant to be one of my swatch shots for Mpolish – Snowberry, but then my nail broke and I had to do a big chop and wanted all of the nail shots in my review post to be consistent. Since that review will be going up later today, I wanted to go ahead and get this mani posted as a bit of a preview!

I wanted to do a Valentine manicure, and Snowberry offers a perfect shimmery white to stamp on top.

I started off with one coat of Nicole by OPI – Tink’s in the Pink. Using half of a latex-free makeup sponge, I created a gradient using Tink’s and Barielle – Dinner at 8. I topped the gradient with a coat of Seche Vite and allowed it to dry completely.

Once dry, I used Mpolish – Snowberry and stamped over all of my nails with Cici & Sisi 01. I topped the stamping with one last coat of Seche Vite to seal everything in!
