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.

  1. why you always have perfect manicures?! I am seriously jealous! :D

    1. Aww, you guys! Thank you! <3 Though I wouldn't say they are perfect, but I'm very happy to hear you like my manicures. :)

  2. Beautiful!! I love the color combo you chose and the "change" of pattern

    1. Thank you so much! It's so nice to hear you liked this manicure! :)

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

    1. Kiitos! Tuo Urban Jungle on kyllä yksi käytetyimmistä lakoista mulla, se sopii niin moneen. :)
