Good evening! I have one last post to finish up Digit-al Dozen Week. I know it's late, but better late than never, right? And I am super happy with this one too!
Post continued after the jump!
I have been wanting to try a mani like this for awhile but just hadn't sat down and tried it. I am so glad I finally did!
I started off with a base of Zoya Posh (Matte Velvet). Once that was completely dry I added a diagonal gradient using Zoya Loredana (Matte Velvet). I let that dry completely before using thin line nail vinyls to add diagonal stripes. I was concerned that it would pull the Matte Velvet polishes up but I didn't want top coat over them because I really wanted to preserve their natural finish. I am happy to report it did not pull up the Matte Velvet polishes!
After I had the nail vinyls on I used two of Zoya's original formula PixieDusts - London and Chyna - to create a gradient using a makeup wedge in the opposite order from the bottom layer. (So where Loredana - grey Matte Velvet - was on the first layer I topped it with Chyna - red PixieDust, and vice versa.) I love the contrast of the Matte Velvet finish with the sparkly PixieDust finish.
I hope you've enjoyed Digit-al Dozen Week as much as I have! Hopefully next month I will be able to post on time each day! Make sure to check out the other awesome manis below if you haven't already!
Thanks for reading and happy polishing!
