Julep Bess Nail Art

Hey everyone! I haven't posted for a while, and this is mainly due to the release of Animal Crossing (I'm a wee bit obsessed) and my lost clean up brush. I'm quite the messy nail painter, so this thing is somewhat of a necessity for me. I still haven't found it, so please don't mind the messy cuticle area... ^^' Throw in a broken nail and lack of inspiration, and you've got the perfect storm for lazy nail painting. But here's something to get me through this polish funk...
I started off with two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. I added Julep Bess, an egg-shell blue creme using the make-up sponge gradient technique. The look is complete with a design from PUEEN21 and Konad Special Polish in Silver. The blue is coming out a lot brighter than it actually it is...it's bit more muted and just gorgeous. A bit on the sheer side though, which made it a bit of a challenge to gradient with.

Thanks for reading! Hope you all are having a lovely week!

    1. Well thank you! Maybe from the blog sized pictures you can't see how messy they are...but in the large ones I was editing I was like "o_O I don't think I can even post these..."
