Golden Moss Garden manicure and Sephora Christmas Presents!

I had quite a bit of fun making this design and it all started with the strangest bit of inspiration and an amazing Christmas present. I saw a beautiful teal gradient in the hair of this drawing and it gave me the perfect opportunity to use my new colors. I started this look out with a base color of Llamasqua’s Viridian which looked lovely by itself I must say! I then sponged The Parking Meteor Expired by Spoiled around the tip and the cuticle leaving the center untouched and alternating a top bottom and a diagonal pattern. I then sponged Ho Ho Holly by Color Club in the center of the nails. I then used a color of my own creation called Jade which is a nice jelly type of green polish with no real shimmer in the dead center. I then took Melon Green by Klean Color to add a highlight in the center and topped it all of with a thin coat of 18k Gold flake topcoat by Sephora! My haul from Sephora is a the bottom of the post so please make sure to take a look and please forgive my dry skin.. I know it doesn’t compliment my nails. 
 

Autumn Sunset manicure

I really had fun with this look. I’ll admit that they tree limbs could be thinner and now I have the new brushes that can allow me to achieve that. But in the meantime I really love the background color for this look. It was a fairly simply made gradient and yet I really enjoy the end result. I used from base to tip Winter Wonderland by ORLY, Torrid Shimmer by Sephora, Harvest Moon by China Glaze and finally Blood Red by Klean Color. I used Liquid leather for the trees and Luxe by ORLY for dotting on the leaves and Watch It Glitter by ORLY for the other leaves.

By the way oh lovely readers of mine, I really appreciate you guys that are still reading as I know I haven’t been regularly posting as I should. Things have been rather stressful lately and I really haven’t had the energy to post my art. Hopefully things will get better soon.
