Pink Studded

After all I've tried, sponging is still my favourite nail art technique. It's simple, endlessly variable and still not your regular straight-from-the-bottle -look.
This is one of the simplest and fastest manis I've made for a long time. I definitely wouldn't do water marbling every day (as I suck in it to the extent that it takes me five hours to get it right..), but sponging... You can't fail at sponging...
The base is two coats of an old Crisnail polish, and the gradient made with with China Glaze 108 Degrees. To make the mani stand out, I added some studs (from eBay) going along the gradient.
I actually liked this one, especially the "wrong" coloured stud in my left hand. Heck, there has to be at least one "catch" in every manicure/outfit, says me! Maybe that's why I so often feel I stand out from the crowd...
Next time something completely different...


  1. I always love sponging too, and you used it to such great effect here--I love the gradient'ed studs going along the ring finger! And yes, that little non-comformist stud...I love it! ;)

    1. Thanks for commenting, Elizabeth! I'm such a sseerious non-conformist, even my manicures rebel... hee hee :D
