NCC presents: Glittery gradient on pastel purple

Here is my second for the Nail Challenge Collaborative with the theme purple. This time I decided to use a pastel purple, or violet color and embellish it with a holographic and silver/blue glittery gradient. I actually really liked this, even though it felt a bit unexpected. This is also the same glitter polish I used for my NYE nail art, then I used a black base and it was interesting to see the glitter on a light background.

This is the most color accurate pic of the purple.

Polishes used:
lol, this time it seems like I accidentally deleted my "polish pic" and the only one I had left was the pic with the names which I usually also take, but for my own reference. Decided to post this one anyhow. ;)
NYC - Starry Silver Glitter
Essence - A Whisper Of Spring

Pink and grey nail art with stamping and gradient

This is made for fun challenge which is called "When Colours Collide" which is basically creating a nail art with a given color combo. Pink and grey / gray is such a fun combo, and surprisingly this is my first of this combo here on the blog. I cheated and added some black to this combo, using a black and pink glitter polish, but it still counts.. ;) Also did a accent nail with stamping and embellished it with some pink rhinestones. Really liked this! <3

Polishes used (sorry for crappy pic):

MoYou Special nail polish
Pretty and Polished - Punk'd Up Betty
Essence - Rock My World
2 MM rhinestones
Born Pretty Store stamping plate BP-L 006 (Bought during on of their sales)
And yea, bonus pic of my most used stamper (bought at ebay)
But what's not in the pic is the matte top coat; Claire's matte top coat.

As you might suspect this certain social media is an instagram one. :) Hope you like it! :)

KIKO - 255, swatch

Here I have some archive pics of KIKO - 255. 255 is a dark rich purple shimmer with some scattered holo sparkles, it was almost a onecoater but I used 2 coats here. :)

Bought at a KIKO store for 2 euro (on sale).
