Nail Gradient: Blurple Pizazzz!!

*ACH!! sorry for not posting, then posting and then not posting... forgive me? School's started*
'Ello!! I'm sure everybody has seen a celeb or next door neighbour sporting 'ombre' hair, where the hair gradually gets lighter towards the ends. A girl in my class had her hair done like so and it looked amazing on her! I was so jealous and I wanted my hair like that as well but my parents would never let me bleach my hair. :( 

I can't remember the first time I saw a nail gradient but I remember it really inspired me and I wanted to try it out. This was my first attempt. The two times I tried would be unsuccessful. Boohoo. But then I saw the Nailasaurus' tutorial, it inspired me again. The gradient was.. well a gradient; not two colours side by side like in my attempts and there were clear instructions with it. All that was left to do was a home DIY!

Nfu-Oh 51: Greatest Polish Ever?

Guess what?? I've found the best Nfu-Oh 51 combo! One coat of Nfu-Oh 51 over 2 coats of Essence Passion For Fashion. I was just looking on Essence's website and seeing if they discontinued this colour in their new line, and turns out I can't find Passion For Fashion so they must have :( If I'm lucky I'll be able to find a chemist that will not have had the chance to put in the new products and stock up on this gem of a polish. Viel Gluck to me...
I absolutely love this combo! Before I use to layer 3 coats of 51 on its own, which means the polish ran out quicker; this way I only need to use one coat on 51. I've been on the hunt for Max Factor Fantasy Fire, which is similiar for Nfu-Oh 51. Ooh and I've also had a lemming for O.P.I Spotted topcoat. But I hear that it's only available in France. Poo!
Oh well, it's only a matter of time before another brand makes a dupe of it and for 51 for that matter! Thanks for reading and leave a comment!!

Until we blog…
