A manicure inspired by (or stolen from) Nail Polish Wars

Press Samples I Bought This  Hi loves! How's your Tuesday? It was finally sunny and warmer here, too bad my ass was stuck in a meeting all day! At least I got to wear a dress haha.

Today's manicure is totally inspired by the amazing Nicole from Nail Polish Wars. When she posted this and I noticed, I just HAD to recreate immediately. I can not believe I never though of this color combo before! I didn't own the correct stamp to mimic completely so I just some own creativity too - hope you like the outcome!


This gradient was created by painting 2 coats of a england Princess Sabra and let it dry. After that I used a england Dragon and St. George to create the gradient. I am so in love with this! I decided to stamp the Bundle Monster 215 snakeskin image on my middle and ringfinger, and my thumb, index and pinky got decorated with a little black stud.




Have you ever tried a tri-color gradient? And how do you like this combo?

  1. Funny, I did a gradient with the exactly same combo of those three a-england polishes earlier this year.. I think it was in March or so.. But the colors do work really well together, I really loved the look you can get with them and I love what you did with it too! :)

  4. I have done a similar gradient but just with Sabra & Dragon. Originally I was going to do St George & Dragon but then realised the other 2 were a more similar. It was the first gradient I ever tried & it looked awesome with the 2 colours blending so well. It kind of ruined me for other gradients now as they never turn out as seamless!

  9. Aww.. yeah the finish allows the colors to blend more easy, cremes can be more though to work with!
