Gradient Angles with Zoya Island Fun Cecilia and Talia

I have a quick nail art look to share with you guys today. I got the idea for my manicure from this beautiful mani by Suvi from Passion for Nails. I really loved Suvi's original look, it reminded me of rose petals or something like that, but since I didn't want to just copy the whole idea, I thought I'd give it a little spin and make a different look with the same technique.

Press sample*
I used my favorite off-white polish: Essie Urban Jungle. I did three thin coats with it and applied a coat of top coat and let it dry completely. Then I just taped my nails with some single chevron nail vinyls and sponged some Zoya Cecilia and Talia next to the vinyls. Finally I just removed the vinyls and added a coat of top coat.
 

Cecilia and Talia look really gorgeous together, they both such beautiful colors! I did this look in a bit hurry, so I didn't use too much time trying to blend them together to make the gradient effect more smooth between them, but I don't think that matters too much. I liked this look quite a bit and I even got some compliments when I wore this manicure.

I will share my swatches of Zoya Cecilia and Thalia later with you guys since I haven't posted those yet. However, I already shared my swatches of Zoya Paradise Sun collection, so if you haven't seen those yet, check them out here.

  3. Onpahan kauniit! Hyvä valinta tuo Essie pohjalle. Valkoinen olisi ehkä ollut liian "raju". Raikkaat kynnet :).
