Glowing Gradient Birthday Nails

Hello!!! I have some fun Birthday nails to show you today! Since tomorrow is my birthday I decided to use some of the new polishes I recently bought.
I ordered a few polishes from The Ultimate Fandom Collection by Dollish Polish and all the polishes in the Neon Glow in the Darks by Serum No. 5! Since I couldn't help myself,  I figured that I'd buy them as my present to myself heehee! Luckily they were both delivered last week.

Okay onto my nails! I knew I wanted to do a gradient with the glow polishes but with so many colors to chose from it took a while to decide. I settled on the purple and blue! I had also ordered a reflective topcoat from Serum No. 5 so I chose that as an accent nail. I painted a white base for the gradient nails and went about the usual sponge gradient steps. Once I was done with that and let my nails dry for a bit, I used two coats of the amazing The Deathly Hallows by Dollish Polish over the gradient!

After adding topcoat and doing all the clean up I was all done! I'm so happy with how my nails turned out! I love all the polishes I used, they all just went together so well for this look. The accent nail is called Flashing Lights and it really does reflect light! I couldn't get a good enough picture of it but in the picture above you can kind of see it. The picture doesn't show how reflective it really is but trust me its beautiful :) You can see it in action on Serum No. 5's instagram.

The best part of any Serum No. 5 glow polish is the glow! As always They're the brightest glowing polishes I own and I love them! They're just so fun :) They make my camera go crazy trying to capture the glow but fun nonetheless.
I really hope you enjoyed this post and loved this design as much as I do! Thank you so much for stopping by my blog :)


What I Used:

OPI Neon Star Burst Water Marble

Hi! For today's post I tried doing a new water marble! I saw a video by PackAPunchPolish on how to do a star burst water marble and I had to try it out. 
I recently bought the whole Neon Collection by OPI and thought they'd be great for trying out this water marble. I used all 6 polishes to do these star burst nails :)

I spilt the collection in half and used 3 colors on some nails and the other 3 on the rest of my nails. The OPI Neon collection had a white base coat to help brighten the colors so I used that as the base for this water marble. I followed the video from PackAPunchPolish to get the design. I'm pretty happy with how they turned out! I like that it was something different for me to try out while doing a water marble.

Matte Water Marble Nails

Hello :) ! I have some bright nails to show you today! Since it's starting to feel like summer weather here I felt like doing a bright water marble. I recently bought the whole Orly Baked collection because it has such nice bright colors. I used 3 of the polishes for these marble nails.

I painted each nail with one coat of the lightest color. After letting that dry a bit I did the water marble. Once all my nails were done and left to dry for a while I added a matte topcoat. While I was doing clean up I decided to add some dots in the opposite colors.

I liked that the dots gave a little extra to the water marble. I also left the dots shiny so they'd stand out even more against the matte marble. I really liked how these nails ended up looking. Plus the bright colors were just fun to wear!
