Manicure: Toasted Marshmallow Gradient French Tip

Manicures, Ombre / Gradient

Toasted Marshmallow EssieI changed my polish again, and before my other mani started to look like crap…how about that. I get a good long wear time out of Essie polish and Seche Vite Top coat.

I wanted something easy and clean before I started in with the Halloween nail art, and even though I’m not quite sure how I feel about my nude/taupe color, husband thought it was great.

I laid down a thick base coat of Sand Tropez, once dry I used the sponge with both colors (see above) and gently applied to the tips until the white was as opaque as I wanted.

I was planning on adding some China Glaze Fairy Dust to this, but my bottle has gotten thick and I don’t have any thinner. However it turned out pretty great without it. I love how soft the french tip effect is with this! The nude color is a bit cool to be toasted marshmallows, but for some reason it’s all I can think of when I look at them. Perhaps I’m just hungry!
