My Nails Have Joined The Cult

Just a quick little post with day 3 of the Different Shades of Blue challenge.  Today's theme is gradient.  I will have proper gradient for you tomorrow, so I decided to go for a flakie gradient using a couple of new (to me) Cult Nails purchased during their last sale.

Crappy picture again, I know.  Please forgive!  I started with two coats of China Glaze First Mate.  Next I sponged with Cult Nails Flushed about 2/3rds up the nail.  This added a very subtle shimmer.  Finally I sponged the lower 1/3rd with Cult Nails Seduction.  I really LOVE seduction (the nail polish too tee hee).  It is a lovely burple jelly filled with color shifting flakies.  As you can see in the crappy photo above, it shifts from pink to blue with obscure flashes of green and orange.  Just plain gorgeous!

And since I love flakies matted, I through on some NYC Matte topcoat.  Adding the matte really helped the shimmer of Flushed  stand out.  Love it!

Want to see some more crappy pictures?  SURE YOU DO!

Well there you have it, a quick, poorly photographed gradient mani (and the clean up sucks too!)  Can you tell I am a little frustrated about losing my favorite camera.  Oh well.  I will be back later tonight with Fashion Friday!  On to the other gradients!
