Essie -To Buy or Not to Buy/China Glaze Aquadelic

Hello!
This is another gradient manicure I did, for this I used as a base color To Buy or Not to Buy from Essie, a pale lilac polish with flecks of iridescent shimmer that are only visible on the bottle because when I painted my nails I didn't see any of them :(




After wearing just this plain manicure for half a day I decided that it needed "something" so I had to look for a color to make a gradient, I decided to use Aquadelic from China Glaze and this is what came out.


If you enlarge the pictures, you can see the shimmer on my cuticles but not on my nails :/




Still looking for that "something"... I ended up stamping using Konad M73/M78, special polishes white and red.




I love how this manicure came out, I had too many compliments and "likes" when I posted it on Instagram.
Did you like it with or without stamping? What do you think about this combination?


Thank you for watching!

  2. I was so so upset that I couldn't get Aquadelic anymore but seeing it in your photos cheers me up a lot.. I would never be able to do such things on my nails!

  4. Me gusta mucho la mezcla del lila con el turquesa.

    Y una lástima lo de que la purpurina no se aprecie en las uñas :(

  12. Gorgeous gradient! That sucks about the shimmer in the Essie though. It's really promising in the bottle.
