Pink Wednesday!! China Glaze Strawberry Fields Golden Gradient and a Sponging Tutorial

Hi loves and happy Pink Wednesday!

  For today I decided to revisit one of my very favorite Pinks. For some reason I've only worn it once before and that's a shame because Strawberry Fields is just soo pretty and classic! I think just about everyone is familiar with this color because it's just so special and China Glaze at it's shimmery best!
  So for this simple look I started with Two coats of Strawberry Fields and then I sponged the tips with China Glaze's Midnight Kiss. I really love how the Golden sparkle in Midnight Kiss blends into the sparkle in Strawberry Fields. I love how simple this look is but it really makes a statement.


And here is Strawberry Fields on her own. Do I need to say much or should I just let the pics do the talking?

And [HERE] is a tutorial on how I did this look. Also!! I got a new camera to be able to do proper tutorials soon!! 


Happy Pink Wednesday and thanks for stopping by!

  13. Beautiful combo. I'm thinking of trying the sponging after a few days of wearing a color to cover the tip wear.

  14. Great tutorial, thank you!!

    It looks like you were using a natural sea sponge--good idea that you had, getting a large one and just cutting off what you need!

    Brava, and gorgeous nails!
