Hope This Makes the Grad-ient


Day 87

Hey everyone! Day 6 of the plague- feeling marginally better, thanks to handfuls of Tylenol Sinus Severe Congestion pills. I'd estimate my head's weight at approximately 39 lb. now!! (Which goes to help out my New Year's resolution #1- lose a few lb.!! WOOOO!)

Anyway, so I fell asleep on the couch at like 8:30 last night, without eating dinner even, and woke up this morning at 7:00, and was shaking so bad I couldn't hand paint anything, so I decided to sponge a gradient, and do some Konading. :-P YAY FOR KONAD!!! I also got to use the American Apparel polishes I bought the other day, and they're great. Really great. Honestly? I'm a tad surprised at how much I like them, and at $6, or since I bought 6 of them, 3 for $15, you can't really beat em.



I used American Apparel Mouse as a base, with American Apparel Mount Royal sponged on top of it, and then China Glaze Millennium applied with Konad Disc C05 from the Coraline I Kit. Topped it off with Seche Vite top coat. :-)

Happy Friday!!

  1. Very very pretty. I just did mine simply last night. They're tipped in white with my french manicure pen (which works really nice) and then covered them with an almost clear with a slightly purple tint super glittery polish. They're around, but I'm too lazy to dig them out and look up the names at the moment lol.
    I'm still waiting for my Seche polishes to come!

  5. You're more skilled while sick than most people are when they are healthy!

  6. I think we are somehow linked via nail polish esp. I had hounds-tooth on my nails when you did and I was totally going to do a gradient nail as my next polish. Looks nice!

  14. This might be my favorite design to date. And that says a lot for your talent seeing as you are nearly dead.

  15. Absolutely lovely! Btw, I don't suppose you have any advice for getting air bubbles out of your nail polish? I always get little bubbles and imperfections, and it drives me nutty.
