Monday Blues: Jewel Glitter Gradient

Hello my lovelies! It's Monday and my vacation is over, which means I will be dreading work by the time you'll be reading this post. I'd rather look back on last week and show you the manicure I wore on my trip to Italy. Whenever I go away I need a manicure that lasts longer than usual, because I don't like to change my nails while I'm away. I usually go for glitter because it's more durable on the nails. It's the second trip in a row where I chose a glitter gradient as a manicure and I wasn't disappointed.

Of course my nails had to be blue because that's the color I never get bored of even if I keep it on for a longer time. I decided to go for an all Nails Inc manicure since I was feeling the Baker Street vibe and had this gorgeous glitter from my friend Kinga that I had to try out.

I think that Nails Inc Baker Street needs no introduction between nail polish lovers but in case you don't know about this polish it's the most perfect and vivid cobalt blue creme. Everybody needs to own this one in my opinion. For the glitter tips I used Burlington Arcade, which is one of the Nails Inc Nail Jewellery polishes. It consists of silver holographic glitter in different shapes. I own several holo glitters but this one is unique in my collection because it contains irregular shaped shards of silver holo foil. Application was a bit tricky because the polish was on the thicker side, but I made it work. Here's a picture in direct light to show the holo effect.

Needless to say that I loved this manicure the whole time I wore it, which was almost a week. It wore well, with only some tip wear and a few tiny chips. Considering that my nails were pretty long and I did a lot of luggage handling, I think it lasted extremely well. Hope you like it too! And don't forget to check out more Monday Blues posts in the links below!

Have a great week!
