Hey everyone! Today I have some nail art for you. I love glitter gradients because they are so easy to do! I started off with two coats of Essie Under Where?, a beautiful lavender creme. Then I took KBShimmer's Squared Away and layered it, concentrating most of it near my cuticle and dotting a few glitters further up the nail. Squared Away is a beautiful glitter topper with blue, pink and silver holographic square glitters and blue microglitters. I hope you enjoy!

First up is PCH, a beautiful dark teal polish with a metallic finish. The formula was perfect. At first, I was worried about brushstrokes, but after the second coat dried they were almost nonexistent. Shown below is two coats, no top coat.
The second polish is Avalon, a bright peach creme. The formula on this one was what you would expect for a creme polish of this color - it was streaky on the first coat but it evened out on the second. I was able to get away with two coats, but I could see it taking up to three to achieve full opacity. This polish dried to almost a waxy finish so make sure you use a good top coat if you want it to shine. Shown is two coats without top coat.
Okay, now this is where I, as a fairly new beauty blogger, step into the unknown! I love wearing makeup and trying new looks for my eyes and such, but I've never blogged about it, so bear with me please!
The Cult Cosmetics Blackbox came with the BH Cosmetics Malibu Eyeshadow and Blush palette. This palette comes with 16 eyeshadows and 4 blushes, all of which I swatched on my freakishly pale forearm that has the potential to sear your eyeballs. You've been warned.
Thanks for reading,
