It's getting hot in here!

It's finally starting to get warm up here in Boston, so felt I had to reflect that with my nails this week. All I wanted was warm, sunny colors. Plus, I just got a huge order from Walgreen's and I try out some of the new colors. Because I'm absolutely in love with gradients right now I did another one, this time with Island Coral, All About You, and Unicorn by Sinful Colors.

From left to right: Island Coral, All About You, and Unicorn

I used Unicorn as the base except for my ring finger where I used Island Coral as an accent. I then used the make-up sponge method (a tutorial can be found here: to create the gold glitter gradient, reversing the gradient on the accent nail.

I'm not usually a yellow person, but I really like SC Unicorn. It's still definitely yellow when you look at it but it's subtle. Island Coral and All About You are equally amazing! I wish I had used a slightly warmer yellow, but over all I like the way it turned out.
