Sponged Gradient with Nail Decals

I am Making a come back after being AWOL for nearly a year!

Life took over and I found it hard to get back to blogging.  I just didn't have the energy to edit my nail photo's and then write up the post etc.  There were a lot of changes going on so I just let it slide by me.  To be honest I needed the break I think, I still don't feel like posting all the time I don't think, but I am going to try and be here at least once a week.

Having said that, it didn't stop me doing my nails.  I have a years worth to share with you all!  I haven't started to even edit my photo's or write the posts yet.  I am still trying to figure out how to do it.

But today is the first day and I am going to share what I am wearing on my nails today.

I have done a simple sponge gradient to go with my nail decals from AliExpress I bought last year.
Nothing special, just quick easy and ready to go manicure.

I must also add I love nail decals, I have a huge box full of them.  Apart from a couple of items they are all bought from AliExpress.  I love shopping there, so much cheaper then anywhere I've found. Anyone else buy from them, or do you have other etailer stores you prefer?  Do share your thoughts, I'd love to know.
Items Used:
as always
OPI Nail Envy
Seche Vite Top Coat
and OPI lacquer as per pics above.

GOT2 - Full Challenge In Pictures

GOT Polish Challenge Part 2 - Week 13 - Gradient

The final challenge of the second GOT challenge. Week 13 of the GOT2 (Golden Oldie Thursday) Polish challenge over at Crumpet's Nail Tarts the theme - Gradient.

I love doing gradients and find the manicure so quick and easy (a little messy) but other than that simple.  I saw this on Nadia Alicia's IG account.  If you are not following, you are really missing out.

Anyway, I just loved the colour combination and had to give it a got.  The oldies in this are the China Glaze and LA Girl lacquers. This is my interpretation.

Items used:
OPI Nail Envy
China Glaze - Grape Pop
LA Girl - Turntable
Nanacoco - Love Me Tenderly
Seche Vite

GOT Polish Challenge Part 2 - Week 11 - Red

Week 11 of the GOT2 (Golden Oldie Thursday) Polish challenge over at Crumpet's Nail Tarts. The theme for this week is Red.

I literally did just that, Red.  This is one of my oldest red nail polish that I own.  It is definitely double figure years old, probably 15years or older!  I would love to own more Zoya nail lacquer, but it is just to heavy on the pocket!

I have neglected it over newer reds, so here it is in all its glory and nothing else.
Items used:
OPI Nail Envy
Zoya - Delilah
