China Glaze Electric Nights Gradient with Doticure

Hello my lovely readers, well I hope you are all having a good week so far. Mine hasn't been the best as I've been suffering from more migraines. According to the doctors they are called visual migraines which is why I keep getting the black splodge in front of my eyes. Not much I can do really just keep taking strong painkillers and wait for them to pass, but I did not let that stop me from making today's gradient manicure.

I recently picked up the China Glaze Electric Nights mini baby beats collection from my local TKMaxx, all 6 had been reduced to £10 for the set, Bargain! Whilst I was there I also picked up some of the Nails-Inc gel effect polishes, swatches and some some nail art will be posted soon.

To create this manicure the first thing I did was apply a white base coat so that the Electric Nights gradient would be a neon as possible. After that had dried I used a make-up sponge from Poundland and applied 4 colours from the set. From cuticle to tip I used Daisy know my name, Treble Maker, DJ Blue my mind and Glow with the flow. the pink and blue seemed to blend well into a shade of purple. It took a 2 coats to be opaque enough for my liking and I love how the different colours blended well together. To finish this manicure off I got my dotting tool and added dots to each nail using China Glaze White on White. 

I wasn't a 100% sure if I liked this at first but it has grown on me the longer it's been on my nails, once the dots were fully dry I used my HK Girl Top coat to seal in my design and then used my Eye shadow brush from Wilko to clean up around the cuticles. 

I hope you have enjoyed this short post, I love the Electric Nights collection and can definitely see me investing in the full size bottles in the future. I hope you are all having a fab nail day and chat to you all again soon.
