The competition begins this week, with a couple challenges during the next few weeks and 2 eliminations of 6 people. After that the final 12 will be announced and we begin competing in the summer. As always I appreciate all the support I get from my followers, when the time comes for voting I will be posting links and ask that you please vote for me! Thank you in advance!!!

Orange and Yellow Floral Fade

Today's post is a fun orange fade with some yellow flowers, perfect for this beautifully warm weather we have been having!!.

This design was done on one of my clients using Gelish in Tiger Blossom and some matching loose glitters. To create this fade look I applied the polish using a make up applicator (the double sided kind with the sponge tips) using one end of the applicator I blended the polish down the nail bed keeping it heavier at the tip and feathering it out towards the middle of the nail. Next using the other side of of the applicator I pressed the loose glitter into the polish. The flowers were painted using Orly Instant Artist Sunshine, Crisp White, Chocolate, Hot Green and Solid Gold.
