LTHP Turns Two in Yummy Lime Crime Nails!

LTHP is Two years old today!!! 

  I really don't wanna do the sappy speech so I'll just thank you for being so AMAZING and keeping me going when even I didn't think I could. Honestly today really did sneak up on me. I had completely forgotten that my blog b-day was coming up so I didn't even get a chance to do "special" nails. But I did do these nails featuring Lime Crime brand new Nail Polish Collection Les Desserts d' Antoinette and they just seemed so fitting for the occasion. 
  This look features all Seven colors in the collection. I started with a base of Milky Ways. On my Index and Pinkie fingers I did some gradients using Milky Ways, Once in a Blue Mousse and  Lavendairy. On my Middle nail I did a gradient using Milky Ways, Parfait Day and  Peaches♥Creme. On my Ring finger I did a gradient using Milky Ways, Crema de Limon, and Pastelchio. I topped these off with some Seche Vite followed by some INm Northern Lights.
 I wanted to create like a parfait nail kind of effect, or cotton candy, my husband mentioned they reminded him of swirly sorbet. Whatever they look like, it's absolutely yummy! I had actually taken this look further by stamping and adding freehand touches. It was in those touches that I unintentionally ruined my manicure so I opted so just show you my pretty gradients instead.
 I have many more looks planned for these. The formula on these colors is just amazing for all kinds of nail art techniques. I also love that all the colors compliment each other perfectly and deliciously. I mean when I look at these I can't wear just one.

 Here is a swatch of my base color Milky Ways. I was pretty much amazed at how perfect the formula is on this shade. From the first brushstroke it was a dream to work with. It's not a stark White and not chalky.  I only needed Two coats for full, even coverage. I love the brush on these polishes and the cute little frosted bottles that don't show finger prints... Ahhh the little things... I'm pretty much obsessed with this shade. It's a different type of White, slightly creamy, maybe just a drop of Orange? I can't place it but I LOVE it. I have a thing for a clean White nail and I can see myself wearing this one quite a lot.
Thank you all for your support and stopping by to see what I'm up to and read my ramblings sometimes :D! I know I'll be doing this for quite some time to come!

Happy Sunday and again THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!

  10. Happy Blog Birthday!! I am glad you will be here for a while. Your gradient gelato nails are perfectly delicious and refreshing. They are really a perfect treat for summer.

    My blog turned two this year also. I realized it after the fact. I couldn't believe I let it slip by. I am a neglectful blog mommy, but I am trying to do better.

    Maybe I will put together a little party on my blog to make up for the neglect.

  11. Beautiful, beautiful post. From the little icon I have for your feed on our website, it wasn't evident that these were gradient nails. And the Northern Lights adds just that perfect sparkle. I'm surprised how much I like the creamy white one. Normally not a white-polish-kinda-gal. But that color really works with your skintone. Keep it around. You did an outstanding job on the mani and with the pix.

  17. It is quite exciting to hear it has already been two years! I didn't realize you had just started your blog when I first met you! You were so professional at it, so good at what you do. I thought you had been a pro for years and years! I have enjoyed each and every posting on your blog and FB. It has been so much fun seeing how many different amazing ways you can come up with to decorate nails. I had never heard if Konad stamping or many of the other endless techniques you use for your nail art. Thx for including us in this fab journey. It's new & exciting every day. Dora
