Orly Ablaze and Hot Tropics Gradient with Water Decals




I have another very bright and summery manicure to share with you guys today!


When I finally got Orly's Ablaze and Hot Tropics all I wanted to do was to combine them into one manicure, they just looked so fun and bright together. And well, that's just what I did!

I know I have shown you quite a few of gradient manicures lately, but somehow I always end up doing those... So I think you'll be seeing gradient here in the future too, hope you aren't bored with them yet!

This time I decided to do the nails just a bit differently, so I did the gradient only to my ring and middle finger nails. For my other nails I just used two coats of the gorgeous Hot Tropics. I did the gradient on my middle and ring finger nails with Ablaze and Hot Tropics, using one coat of Ablaze as my base color. Then I also added some simple black water decals and nail art crystals to each nail.

I haven't been too much into purple polishes lately even though at one point they were really my favourite ones... Maybe I got an overdose or something, but Orly's Hot Tropics really made me fall in love with purple again! It's sooooo gorgeous! I can't help it, I love that type of shimmer so much and the combination of the warm purple and the shimmer is so pretty. both of these had also really nice quality, though Ablaze seems to be a bit more sheer that Hot Tropics. Hot Tropics covered easily with just two coats.

Hot Tropics was such a winner for me that Ablaze didn't really do too much for me. It's a pretty orange, but I feel like I have prettier ones, like China Glaze Riveting. Also the shimmer isn't as obvious in Ablaze as it is in Hot Tropics, which was a bit disappointing. But it's a bright and fun polish nevertheless and I really liked this gradient combo with the two polishes.
