This manicure was one of my favorite looks that I've done so far. My only regret is that the photo's don't show the beautiful fade of colors that I worked on. I started out with Winter Wonderland by ORLY and did SEVERAL good coats of it because it was fairly translucent. Then I took Lux by ORLY and placed a couple of decent sized drops midway up the nail and did the same with a few drops of Winter Wonderland at the base and took a makeup brush and carefully brushed the colors forward to get a good gradient going. Once this was mostly dry I took Sheer Brilliance by Essie and did a good coating of it on my nails and then a good couple of coats (its so thin it takes a few) of Love Each Other by ORLY and finished off with my current favorite topcoat by China Glaze.
