Teal Tuesday - Cirque gradient masquerades as a funky french!

Good morning lovelies, I hope your Tuesday is going well. :)  Today will be short and sweet since I'm still scrambling to get my act together. So please enjoy this week's installment of Teal Tuesday!

This week's Teal Tuesdays theme is Funky French and I had this grand idea to do a dotticure funky fresh a la Chalkboard Nails buuuuut, since life has snuck off with all of my free time I didn't have the time to sit down and do the work. I'm super bummed. I had like six or so of my favorite teal polishes, including Zoya Paloma (wink, wink), all picked out and they're just sitting in my "to be" box. *sad face* So I hope you all will accept a manicure I pulled from the vault that is still maybe, possibly, technically, a funky french. I had this post lined up for later but now is a good a time as ever! I promise I'll get my fancy pants, million teal, dotticure done soon so I can share with you guys my grand idea. 

I created this gradient using two coats of Cirque Never Nude, a champagne beige holo, and sponged on the tips Cirque Epoch, a teal shimmer with a hint of a purple duochrome shift. They're both incredible polishes so I can't wait to show you my swatches. Sponging Epoch turned out to more difficult than sponging jellies! The teal shimmery bits float around in a sheer blackened base that doesn't build up color incredibly well on its own, all of the teal you see is from the shimmer. Needless to say, there was shimmer everywhere and it was a nightmare to clean up. Why do I always pick the hardest colors to sponge with!? lol

I hope you guys like my little cheat for this week, I'll make it up to you guys I promise. <3 In other news, I will be out of town for the holiday weekend so I won't be able to post any challenge manis. Having family in town just cuts my mani time down to zero, plus we're all scheduled out for the next two weeks! I will however, do my best to have scheduled posts up to make sure I keep with the daily posting. xoxox
