Nail Art ~ Top Shelf Lacquer Gradient

I recently had an opportunity to pick up a few of a new-to-me brand, Top Shelf Lacquer. An opportunity I couldn’t pass up, also known as a sale. As soon as I opened the package of new pretties I jumped right into a gradient using 3 of the 6.

The 3 colors I used for this gradient are Pacific Blue Sangria, Wild Orchid Cocktail, and Pink Flamingo.

Since these all had a little in the way of glitter or holographic glitter in them I decided to do a fan brush gradient, rather than piling it on thick with a sponge. I really liked this method as it allowed me to blend the colors perfectly without having to use much polish. I will definitely be using this method again for gradients.

I liked the results of the gradient so much I jumped right into stamping without so much as snapping a single picture. So this is all you get to see… 🙂

For the stamping I used an image from UberChic plate 7-02, MdU White and my brand new Fab Ur Nails clear jelly stamper. (My favorite clear jelly stamper yet – but thats another post!)

I hope you liked this mani! I was very pleased with how easy these polishes were to work with. Do you have any Top Shelf Lacquers?

    This is stunning! I picked up some with the sale but they’re currently in my untried stash.

    I LOVE my Top Shelf Lacquers! Last fall’s Harvest Brews are my ultimate rich, vampy fall polishes, and all the Sangrias are fun. Just got 3 of the new “Bar Quotes” multichromes and I’m really happy with how gorgeous they are, even without undies. I’m wearing “Take Me Drunk, I’m Home” as I type this. So many shifting colors.

    I love the way this looks. At first, it looks like a gradient stamping! I had to look again!

  • Amy L

    Absolutely stunning! I adore the gradient with the stamping.

  • This mani is perfection! I don’t own any Top Shelf Lacquers but I do have a few on my wish list! I’ve never tried a gradient with a fan brush either!!

    I’ve not tried Top Shelf Lacquer. Your man is stunning x
