Summer Gradient

Hello lovelies! As I showed you on my Instagram yesterday, I did a gradient manicure this weekend - and it was all inspired by an iPhone cover. Dat cover. It's really pretty! I immediately thought it would look good as a nail design, and well, as I'm not getting the cover any day soon, I just went for it! To create the look I used Tart Deco and Mint Candy Apple from the lovely brand Essie. As they are both very opaque, I didn't even need a layer of white polish beneath them! They were sponged right onto my base coat! Tart Deco is a coral orange creme - the shade is obviously directly inspired by the classic art deco style. Mint Candy Apple is a light mint-green creme, and is the complete contrast color to Tart Deco, which is why I think they go so well together.

Bottom line, I think the look is perfect for summer. If you'd like to know where to get the cover, or casually order it for me haha, just click here. Thanks for reading - I'm new at this and this is just a start, but it's definitely not a fluke. So stick around :) See ya everyone!

Chanel - Taboo #583

Hello lovelings! Today I'm going to show you this fantastic and beautiful new nail polish from Chanel. If you follow me on Instagram you may have already seen a couple of these photos, but not in their full glory as of right now! Taboo launched in Denmark (where I live btw) on May 27 in the 2013 collection Revelations de Chanel. Gawd, I was so excited because of course I'd known for months about its release, and girl - it did not disappoint. Taboo is a very dark and mysterious deep purple shimmer. It's truly unique, as it has this complex mix of the galaxy's colors, merging the warm and cold toned nuances to perfection. Application was so easy, and coverage was complete at two coats. You can see my final thoughts below the photos.

 Would you just look at that! The formula is packed with shimmery liquid luxury! Gorgeousss.

So do I recommend this nail polish or what? Well. What can I say. Taboo is my absolute favorite release from Chanel this year, hands down. I'm just, I LOVE IT! I love it sooo much. For all of my photos, I'm using my iPhone camera, and it is simply not capable of showing the awesomeness-ness-ness that lies within my dear nail polishes. But it tried and WILL try its very best! Thanks for reading my first blog post yaaay! See ya everyone!
