NAILS | Purple Holo Taping Gradient #CBBxManiMonday

It's the first set of nails for 2022! I was seriously at a loss for what to do even though our theme is "Purple and Blue" as an hommage to this year's Pantone colour of the year "Very Peri" which is kind of a purply-blue. These are two of my most favourite shades to wear so I think I was just lacking in inspiration for what to do, but then I saw this super pretty HOLO gradient from @hannahroxit and I knew I'd found my muse!

For my base, I am using two coats of the now discontinued Nicole by OPI "Love Song" from the Selena Gomez collection. I LOVED Nicole by OPI and I am so sad that these polishes were discontinued! I loved the collaborations with Selena Gomez, the Kardashians and Carrie Underwood! They always had beautiful shades and the shape of the bottles was quite unique. Even though these have been discontinued for at least 5 years, I still have a few shades to wear (I say that a lot!) so I'm really hoping that before I die I get a chance to show them off!

After letting the two coats of purple dry, I applied striping tape at the base of my nails and then sponged on the holo ILNP "Top Down" concentrating at the cuticle side in order to get that gradient effect. I did my best to clean up the glitter, but alas it was pretty much everywhere!
