Marsh Gradient and Butterfly Charm

Another gradient. Okay, maybe by now you're thinking, "That's quite enough of those." But I just love wearing them! They're an awesome way to turn up the volume on a simple manicure without requiring too much detail work or going too crazy.

The colors in this one reminded me of a marsh! I used three China Glaze shades.
China Glaze - Def Defying
China Glaze - Sunday Funday
China Glaze - Man Hunt

I also added a butterfly no. 1 charm from Hex Nail Jewelry. I love nail charms so darn much. The curve on this one fit my thumb nail perfectly.



Here's the naked gradient, sans charm!




I just loved the colors in this gradient so much. I don't think they've quite beaten out my 70's gradient in my heart, but they are definitely darn close.

  16. OOh I love the colour combination!!! I am not a huge fan of charms usually, but this is pretty. I think I might snag it on things a lot. Does that happen to you?

    ReplyDelete
  17. No, not at all! I add a layer of topcoat over these, too, which helps seal in the edges of the charm and minimize snagging.

  27. Be suspicious if you start having unusual pain
    on one side of your body. This paste when applied to the affected area gives
    a good relief. Shingles infections are most commonly found in people over the age of 60 or so, but anyone who has previously had
    chickenpox is at risk.

  28. Amazing! This blog looks just like my old one! It's on a completely different subject but it has pretty much the
    same page layout and design. Great choice of colors!
