Summer Challenge: Orange – freestyle day featuring China Glaze, OPI & A England

Hello lovelies!

It's another day of Summer Challenge and the theme is Orange - freestyle day! So with what freestyle orange idea I came up with? 

Well I started of with a one coat of China Glaze Orange You Hot?. When the first coat dried I took a makeup sponge and used OPI Roll In The Hague and Orange You Hot? to create a gradient colour. When I was happy with the result I started to paint this abstract shape using A England Camelot. Then I sealed the whole manicure with topcoat. Voila!

  1. Love how your gradient looks, perfect!

  2. This is super nice! Love the colours you have used.

  3. So pretty. I love the abstract accent finger, beautiful.

  4. This is the best gradient I've ever seen!! I love the orange CG polish, I think I might have to order (even though it's Winter here in Australia)!!

  5. Love it, perfect gradient!! And the accent nail, just perfect :)

  6. This is absolutely brilliant, Lucy! Your gradient is so smooth, and I love the juicy colours you picked. The freehand accent really draws the eye without pulling too much focus from the rest of the mani too. Beautiful work!!

  14. Oh how gorgeous! I love that pattern over the gradient. I think it looks like a butterfly wing.
