the 4th!

I wasn't sure how to do my nails for this holiday, considering I went all out for Memorial Day. I also used the same three colors from that manicure, its interesting how different designs can make colors look so different. I have been seeing a lot of gradient manicures, but I wasn't sure how it would turn out with three different colors. I like how it turned out, however for being so easy to do on my left hand, it was a real pain on my right to get the gradient the same as the other hand. I finished the look with a coat of Essie Matte About You.

  2. I really like this! I've been thinking about trying the gradient look but haven't gotten that far yet. I also need to try the matte top many things to try!
