Wedding Weekly: Honeymoon Wet N Wild I Need A Refresh-Mint and Glitter Gradient (Nail Challenge Week 8)

Well, you waited long enough for my final post in this Wedding Weekly challenge. I was doing so well and then I kinda trailed off at the end :/ whoopsie! 

And, my nail length may jump around for a little bit.  I had two breaks recently so I took my nail length down quite a bit.  They are still long in this post, but you already saw my shorties in my Lush Lacquer Post. I'm embracing them, but I still have a few posts with my longer nails in my blog backlog :)

This challenge was to create a mani inspired by my honeymoon. I went to Niagara Falls for my Honeymoon.  I wanted to try my first glitter gradient to mimic the mist created by the waterfalls.
Here is the finished mani.  Each step is shown below and you can click any of the images to enlarge them.

I started with 2 coats of Wet N Wild I Need a Refresh-Mint.

It applied easily & smoothly. Love this polish!

Next, I applied Wet N Wild Kaleidescope to half of my nail using the regular polish brush.

Next, I applied China Glaze Techno to a quarter of my nail also using the regular polish brush.  I chose Techno because it had the same kind of glitter as Kaleidescope, just some larger sized glitter, too. It made for a really easy gradient.  I used 1 coat of my Out The Door Topcoat to smooth everything out.

I love how it came out! Yay for my first glitter gradient!

Here is a shot of me in Niagara Falls.  It was so beautiful!  I could show you a million more photos, but I know it is all about the polish ;)

I hope you enjoyed these Wedding Weekly Challenges created by Pink By Stephanie!  I know I did!  It was fun to share more personal photos with you. I can't believe this is the last one!  Maybe that is why it took me so long to post this one :/ I didn't want it to end!
