NOTD: Autumn Gradient with Shinespark Polish holos

(Press sample; affiliate links)

Hello!

From the moment I saw the Shinespark Falling Leaves fall holos collection, I knew I wanted to do a fall holo gradient. No question, I knew it was going to be beautiful, and I had to make it happen.

I took Shinespark Polish Harvest, Pumpkin Spice, and Hot Cocoa, and did a gradient starting with Harvest at my cuticles. Then I added a pumpkin that I colored in using the reversed-stamping method; I used BM-H11, Wet n Wild Blazed, Sally Hansen I-Rush Luck, and Zoya Desiree.


Here's how it came out:

I love the colors in this gradient, although I think I went a little low on the pinkie. Still, such gorgeous fall colors, I hate to take it off...I'm thinking maybe I'll do a second look with it, because I have an Incoco accent wrap that will look gorgeous with it...


Happy gradienting!

  5. Beautiful gradient. Those colors blend so well! I love the pumpkin! I still have to get the hang of reverse stamping. They always rend to curl up on me.

    1. Yeah, it can be tricky...much better with a manicure that only needs one image than one on every finger, lol! :)

    1. This is my favorite indie collection of the year. She was out of full-sized bottles when I bought a couple of them (she's restocked now), and I'm strongly considering grabbing the full ones so I don't run out!!
