My very first Gradient

So I promised more activity blog posts and I will definitely be doing more.  So I apologize if I blow up your blog feed with posts.

I have spent countless hours looking at pics of gradients and videos on how to do them.  I bought makeup sponges a few months ago, and was to afraid to try one, because I assumed I would fail miserably.

I mentioned wanting to do a gradient for a friend and she told me I should and a few on Twitter told me I should try as well.  So I gave it a go.

I used the following colors:

butter London Dodgy Barnett
OPI On Her Majesty's Secret Service
Sally Hansen Navy Baby

The used the method where you pant a thin coat of the lightest color on your nails, and then I painted my colors on a makeup sponge and then dabbed the colors onto my nails.

Since I don't have any self control I added NYC Matte Me Crazy, and OMG I love it!

Then I needed to add Black Cat Lacquer Love Will Tear Us Apart.

Overall, I am very proud of how well my gradient turned out and all of my additions to it seemed to work pretty well!

What do you think?

Bondi New York Brick Road

What's up everyone?

I hope everyone is doing great!  I have my first yellow polish that I want to share with you. It is from Bondi New York and is called Brick Road.  Please note that this product was sent to me for an honest review.

You can find their polishes on their website,

Their brand is 5 free and non-toxic.  They recently launched their brand with 20 pretty awesome colors.  Bondi also donates profits each bottle sold to charity.

Brick Road is a bright yellow cream polish.  This is the first yellow polish that I have worn.  I really like it!  The name totally fits because it reminds me of the Yellow Brick Road from the Wizard of Oz. This is 3 coats and a coat of Seche Vite.  I think this would look great with 2 coats but I wanted to make sure that I had full coverage. 

The formula is fantastic and applies very well.  Clean up is extremely easy as well.  I think this color makes my nail beds look slimmer.

Bondi did an amazing job on their start up selections, I almost couldn't choose just one.  I wanted like 4-5 of the colors.

I don't really have anything negative to say about this polish. I can't wait to add more to my stash!
