Metalic Neutral Gradient

I have gotten back into doing gradients lately, and was digging thru my stash to find some different colors to do one with. I ended up choosing a few neutral metallic's and love how it turned out!

I used Essie: Good as Gold, Penny Talk, Zoya: Codie, and top coat of Out the Door

Isn't she a beauty? I just love gradients!! The metallic in the Essie's really makes this gradient pop! I forgot about doing gradients with metallic's, my last one was sooo long ago, you can check it out here. Hope you enjoy today's mani!

Metalic Snowflakes

Today I have some more snowy nails! For some reason I keep wanting to incorporate snowflakes in my designs, I also wanted to make a brighter version of my subtle snowflakes design I did on monday.
Base, coat China Glaze: White on White, than I applied Orly: Winter Wonderland and two coats of butter LONDON: Matte Finish. Using Kleancolor: Metalic Aqua and Sapphire on stamping plates BM-319, 318. Top coat of Out the Door.
I defiently love metalic stamping on matte's. I may have done alittle to many snowflakes but they were so pretty!
Do you prefer this brighter design over my subtle design from monday?

Sparkle Tips With Copper

As much as I loved the copper from yesterday I HAD to add this color to my mani. Of course you can't go wrong with some glitter tips.

The color is Orly: Ingenue. I used a make up sponge to add glitter tips, than top coat of Out the Door.
This Orly is SO pretty, its a brown/pink/gold sparkle. I consider it a sparkle duo chrome since it shifts colors. It is absolutely gorgeous in the sun as you can see, it might even be better than a Hologram! Simple but beautiful.

Holo Blue, Kleancolor

 I mentioned that I wondered how the Kleancolor Holo's would look over a base color, so this post is an example of how the Holo Blue looks.
The base color I used was Kleancolor: Metallic Aqua, this was another one of my new colors. I was able to get away with one coat of Holo Blue since I used a base coat. Out the Door Top Coat.
It defiantly shines ALOT more having start with a metallic color as base. I think that the rest of my holos would also look good over the corresponding color from the metallic collection of Kleancolor.
Do you prefer these colors over a base also? or just 3 coats on their own?
