Day 6: Inspired by Another's Nails

I'm sorry this is going to be a short one, I had to put this together quickly as the girls would NOT sleep last night.

Challenge Day 6 is Inspired By Another's Nails. I was going to do the Wizard of Oz nails from Chalkboard Nails, but I didn't have the right tools. I tried 4 times, and the gingham just would not come out right! So, I scrapped it and had to find something simpler. A cop-out, I know, but I was really really tired, and the kids kept waking up, I just wanted to get it done!

The nails that inspired me came from the Nailasaurus. This was not only the first nail blog I discovered, but this was the first glitter gradient I had ever seen, and I was hooked!

Without further ado, my Sammy-Inspired glitter gradient

I only own two gray polishes *gasp* and neither was quite right, so I layered! I used NYC Sidewalkers over Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicures Greige Gardens. The glitter I used is Essence Special Effects Toppers Circus Confetti, and I dabbed it on to make the gradient effect. Most people swipe it on, but my personal preference is to dab. It's all topped off with Seche Vite.

Day 7 of the Challenge is Stripes/Lines. Going to have to start practicing!
