OS X Mavericks Inspired Nails

IMG_9020.jpg

Happy Mani-Monday everyone! Ever since I started school, I haven't been able to paint my nails as much as I've wanted to, but Apple released OS X Mavericks this past week (for free) and I was instantly inspired by the colors!

I started by creating a gradient with Illamasqua's "Nomad" as a base, and Sinful Color's "Love Nails" as the gradient color.  The iridescence of "Love Nails" was perfect, because it made it sparkle just like the deep ocean waters. Then I used a thin nail polish brush to fill in my accent nail with white nail polish to create the beautiful "X" design.  

It was really fun to do & the colors are just beautiful! I hope you guys give it go! If you do, don't forget to instagram me a picture of your design @InJensLife. xoxo JN
