Twinsie Tuesday: Mattify!

Tuesday, May 26, 2015

Today's Twinsie Tuesday theme is mattify. I don't do a lot of matte manicures so I was excited for the theme. Since its been ages since I've done a gradient so I decided to do one.

Matte Pink and Berry Gradient Nail Art

To create the gradient, I first applied Avon Super Nova on all the nails. After that dried, I applied that with Avon Starburst on a makeup sponge and sponged the gradient on. For more sparkle, I added a coat of e.l.f. Fairy Dust on top. Finished with NYC Matte Me Crazy Mattifying Top Coat.

So happy with how this gradient turned out. I was a bit sad that the flakie isn't really that noticeable in the pictures but in real life, it totally is. What do you think?
