This manicure is inspired by that sunset. Well, it started that way, anyhow. I sat down intending to do a stormy sunset gradient. But I couldn't get the colors to blend the way I wanted them to. So I changed the colors. It snowballed from there but the end result is pretty great.
So, the colors I ended up sponging the gradient with are Wet n Wild D'oh!, Wet n Wild Sunny Side Up, and Essie Sunset Sneaks. I love the way the gradients turned out. Still like a sunset but more...tropical? And here's when my idea went in another direction completely. Suddenly, I wanted to add some stamping. I perused my stamping plate collection and gravitated toward animal prints. I chose a zebra print from BM-223 and a leopard print from BM-221. I used Sally Hansen Rapid Red. Then, I decided to add some rhinestones. I found some pretty red heart rhinestones and popped those on. Lastly, I slapped on a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust just because!
I LOVE THESE! I wore them for days and could not stop staring at them!
