Starry gradient nail art

Gradient nails are super easy and fun and I keep making mental notes of the different combinations I want to try. One of them is this metallic gradient going from champagne gold to bronze-y brown.

Base: miss claire champagne gold (it actually has no shade name, just a number), Maybelline bold gold, Lakme metallics 241 and chg chiaroscuro.
Stamped with Konad black using Pueen 44.
Topped with Girl HK tc.

The below pic is before clean up but I just wanted to capture the base gradient. It would work really well for parties as well as normal day to day base coz it's not too blingy.

See ya soon with another mani.

Striping tape nail art and two more!

Wanted to try out striping nails since a long time. And had some new polishes to try as well. Plus gradients always look so good. And the result is this:

 Base: maybelline color show constant candy: a nice baby pink with mild shimmers but was streaky. 
Added some striping tape in random manner.
Sponged: Faces sand coat in oatmeal raisin. 

I love how this turned out.. Quite interesting and did grab a few eyeballs with random strangers asking me if those were some new kind of nail stickers or stick on nails. Hehe!

Meanwhile a niece-nephew twin duo had come to stay over a couple of days. While the nephew was happy watching oggy and the cockroaches (yikes!! Yes that's what cartoons are called these days) the niece was bored so I did my usual stuff on her too. See.

Cute nails right?

And meanwhile a friend was getting married and I offered to do her nails too. 
I wanted to do a very intricate kind of design.. But after I saw her hands full of the traditional Indian henna (Mehndi) I decided to keep it bold but simple.

 Whew! Long post I know. 
See ya soon.
