Golden Gradient and Stamping!

Today I have a gradient I did on Sunday night. I'm really proud of how they came out. It was my first time using my Mash stamping plates and my first time using rhinestones :)

Here are the polishes I used:
 L to R: Essence "What Do U Think?, Orly "Glitz", Misa "Sisterhood", Misa "Sweet Pleasure", and and unnamed Black/Silver Dollar Store Polish

The plate I used was Mash- 36. I used the Eye of Ra image.

I started out with 2 coats of  Essence "What Do U Think?":
 "What Do U Think?" is a orange creme with a gold shimmer, which you can see better in the bottle in the pictures. It does show up on the nail. It is very pretty.

 I then used Orly "Glitz" and Misa "Sisterhood" to create my gradient. I plan on making a tutorial for the gradient soon, so please keep an eye out for that :)
 I was kinda going for a golden, desert-like gradient, Egyptian looking.

 I think it turned out beautiful.

 I wanted to add a little something more, so I did 1 coat of Misa "Sweet Pleasure"

 I love the sparkle and how subtle it is.

Using my polish from the Dollar Store, which is like a black and silver swirled together and it has a really awesome color, unlike any other black I have. I stamped an eye on each nail and as an accent I added a red rhinestone to the center of the eye on my ring fingers.

The clean-up was a bit of a pain but totally worth it. I love this mani and I almost don't want to take it off, but I can't wait to play with my Mash plates some more. I hope you enjoy looking at it as much as I do wearing it.

Thank you for reading!!
