Zoya Rocky Gradient

I wanted to bring you a quick post today… I am back after my mini-beach vacation and am not only surprised, but extremely impressed that my beach-themed manicure lasted! Spending most of my time in the water and with all that sun, sand and heat, I was sure I’d have to reapply… I even brought a selection of polishes to choose from! (Not to mention top coat, base coat… files…)

Without even giving it much thought, I knew I wanted to use my favourite bisque shade, OPI’s My Vampire is Buff as a base (as I have for my other recent gradients here and here). Instinctively I reached for the beautiful creme blue shade Rocky from Zoya’s Stunning Collection for Summer 2013. Rocky is a gorgeous, highly wearable sky-blue shade; bright but without being in-your-face, and it looked amazing with MVIB! (Have I told you that blue is my favourite colour?)

Please excuse the iPhone quality picture, but I literally applied this mani once I had finished packing and was getting ready to head to the airport. Being slightly tight on time, I cheated a little and actually applied some Rocky to the tips straight from the brush, then sponged on the gradient for the blended, gradient effect:

Imagine how great it felt to see my nails and be transported to heaven on earth:
