Bridal nails


Today I have a mani I did several weeks ago. I submitted these to Nail It! Magazine for their white/bridal prompt for their May/June 2016 issue. Fingers crossed it makes it in! 

It's a super simple glitter gradient over a white base. I think it's the perfect amount of sparkle for a wedding. This is probably what I would wear when the time comes to renew our vows :)

Zoya Aspen & Zoya Cosmo

I used Zoya Aspen from the Winter/Holiday Matte Velvet Collection and Cosmo. I love Cosmo so much I have a back up bottle! You can see a plain swatch of Aspen in my review here.

For this mani I did two coats of Aspen over a bare nail. I waited for it to dry a bit so probably around 10 minutes. Then I dapped Cosmo at the top and with the brush I sort of dragged the glitter down about half way on my nail. I did this twice and then did some glitter placement with the bigger hex glitters. And that's it. I didn't add any top coat since I wanted the base to stay matte. I really liked how this came out.

What do you think of this look? Would you wear it for a wedding?

See you next time! Happy polishing! :)

  1. I wish I had Cosmo, this mani looks so pretty!

  2. Bummer I don't have Cosmo but I adore Aspen. It has such a beautiful subtle shimmer that the camera doesn't quite get.

  3. This is really pretty, and I hope it ends up in the magazine! I did one as well, and it is pretty different from this one. Hoping for BOTH of us, lol!

  4. Ohhhh...good luck! This is stunning!

  5. Gorgeous! I have a feeling it will make it :)

  6. Your gradients are always so gorgeous. I hope to see you in the magazine again!
