A closer look at my first gradient, with Sonia Kashuk and Deborah Lippmann!

Happy Saturday, lovelies! Today I'm reporting to you from sunny Rancho Cucamonga, man that's so much fun to say. I'm in LA this weekend with my hunny bunny and fam for Father's Day. Yesterday the two of us spent the afternoon down in Malibu on the beach and driving the PCH after strawberry milkshakes at the original Bob's Big Boy. Today the boys went to the LA Roadster Show and us girls went to Downtown Pomona to peruse the antique shops. No good finds in any of the shops today though.

Ok, so the other night I showed my latest stamping adventure over a gradient manicure. It was my first try so I was pretty pleased with the results, it was super easy too so I hope you'll give it a try if you haven't yet. There's nothing to it!

The two polishes I used were Sonia Kashuk Fairy Princess and Deborah Lippmann Let's Hear it for the Boy. I picked up Fairy Princess at Target and Let's Hear it for the Boy came in one of the Footloose clearance sets from QVC (or was it HSN?) with Dancing in the Sheets.

You can see, I alternated my accent nails on opposite hands. My right hand was two coats of Let's Hear it for the Boy with Fairy Princess on my tips, my left hand was visa versa. Voila!

Let's Hear it for the Boy is an amazing light blue crème! And for a pastel I had no application issues, I could literally feel the luxury of a designer polish as I was applying it. Bringing this home at a discount makes it feel sooo much better too! Oh, and can you see the killer shine it dried with?? Gah, I love it. Can you tell?

Fairy Princess is a soft mint green with blue microglitter, or is it shimmer? It removed like a glitter, gritty and a pain in the ass. Application wasn't the greatest either, but I guess I got what I paid for (or a little less). Two coats, it was thin but gummy and dried slightly dull. It's pretty but I don't think it meets it's fullest potential, or my standards.

What do you guys think of my gradient? Have you tried a Sonia Kashuk polish before?

Until next time, xoxox!
