Holo Gradient Using Aly's Dream

I have nothing of interest or catchy to open with for this post.  The truth is I was looking for a polish to do my nails and was looking for one that would easily remove because of the poor, sore state of my cuticles. I'm sure everyone is tired of hearing about the woes of my poor, sore state of my cuticles for the last month as they seem to be monopolizing my posts lately...and even made it to my newly started Twitter feed lol! The good news is (knock on wood and checking nails right now), I think they are behind me (although I'm pretty sure I have lots more pix to share so just overlook them...and I'll try not to bring them up again!!) So here's a pretty holo gradient that I did not too long ago.

Started with a base of two coats of Aly's Dream Bayouberry, no topcoat.

Sponged on a Aly's Dream Duchess Blue.  Didn't topcoat; just waited for it to dry while I looked for a plate to use.

Stamped using MoYou Tourist Collection-07 using white Konad special polish.

A quick look at MoYou Tourist Collection-07.

Topped with SV to finish.

Speaking of my Twitter feed....I started this a little over a  week ago if you haven't seen it on the right of the page.  I did it for a few reasons....believe it or not, I do more than paint and stamp my nails!  I realize that my blog isn't the most personal as I don't share a whole lot about what I do in life (and that probably won't change much as my blog was started and always will be for the most part, keeping track of my mani's). But sometimes I stumble across polish sales or great finds.  In fact, not too long ago, I found a whole bunch of Essie's for $2.  But I recognize I'm slow to post and I may never do a post to let people know via the blog that there are $2 Essie's for sale. But it's easy enough to tweet about it in a few seconds. Same with the recent tweet about the Black Friday sales and the blogger who is compiling the list; or the info about the recently released Bunny Nails plates. I also do quite a bit of travelling around Ontario doing different things and thought I may share some of the pix of my travels that may not be nail blog material but may be of some interest.  The feed may even highlight other blogs or items/posts of interest out in the blogesphere. Things like this. While I haven't done a whole lot of tweeting, the intention is that it will be a mix of what I'm doing of interest (that may not be too much when you consider one tweet was me making rice crispy squares!) as well as some polish and/or plate news/commentary.  I don't expect that I'm going to get a huge Twitter following; that wasn't the intention, but more so to add it to the blog page just as a quick update to see what's currently happening if that makes sense!

Thanks for looking!


  1. I love the gradient with the white stamping. Such a pretty combination. I haven't taken the twitter plunge yet. I can't get into it. I am seriously considering Instagram which I guess is a step in the right direction lol

    1. I'm just getting into other social medias...resisted for the longest time because everyone should just read my blog, right! j/k. Anyway, I have done Instagram but so far, have just been doing the same pix as on the blog just no long wordy posts!

  2. I love that you started a twitter, and if you have instagram or facebook I love following people on there. I find twitter/instagram are great for sharing "the other side" to the blogger, rather than just the nails!

  3. I think this is among the most significant info for me. And i am glad reading your article. But want to remark on few general things, The web site style is great, the articles is really excellent : D. Good job, cheers
