Pure Ice Suede Gradient with Sonoma Nail Art Scooters-4-Hooters

Here is an NOTD I did a while ago and loved so much! You all know how much I love suede polishes and this manicure was a match made in heaven!

I used three of the Pure Ice Suedes that came out during the winter. I actually never found these and had a friend send me them. I started with a base of Pure Ice Draped which is a wonderful hot pink suede. Then I did a gradient on top of Draped with Stunning and Touch Me Softly. I never really make my gradients seamless when I know I'm putting glitter over it, as I did here. People always ask me and I do the basic gradient method. I know people paint the entire sponge and then gradient but no time for that. I rip a piece of makeup sponge, put some polish on tin foil and dip and gradient.

Lastly I added one coat of Sonoma Nail Art Scooters-4-Hooters which was actually a polish that came out in October and SNA donated $5 of each bottle to a local organization which helps women get mammograms. Great polish and a great cause! It's a simple pink and white glitter polish but I like the consistency in the size of this polish. It was the perfect topper without being too distracting over the gradient.

What do you think of my multi-pink gradient? I need some bright green suedes to be made now! I love suedes!

    1. LOL....I just use a makeup sponge. My gradients aren't the best, but when I cover with glitter, who cares?
