March Nail Art Challenge - Day 3: Gradient

Okay, so I suck at keeping to a schedule. But I think I have a worthy excuse! I have been so busy studying for a big engineering test every weekend all day long on top of working all week. No days off makes for little time for nail art. 

I finally got around do doing the 3rd installment of the March Nail Art Challenge (though, I was supposed to start the 4th one today...oops!). The theme was gradient and I wanted to use two more of my new Julep Polishes to create the look. I ended up pairing Georgia, a pretty peach micro shimmer, with Susie, a muted mint green creme. These were colors I wasn't 100% sure would look nice together in a gradient, but I'm really happy with them! A happy surprise :)

 If you don't know by now, I don't know how to leave simple nails like this alone. I can't resist the urge to add some extra pizzazz to my nails when I can. So, I got out my trusty striping brush and added some random and odd triangle and polygon-ish shapes over these. I really love how these turned out. Pretty subtle, but I love them :)

Happy Polishing :)
