Two days later, but I want to post my cream/color blocking mani for 30 Days of Color challenge. I had an idea to make double color blocking and use some vinyls, which I bought at Emily de Molly website, it was way to ambitious for my level of this technique. The polish combo of paste creams and holos works together marvelous, but whole mani would look much better with gradient technique, rather than blocking. Needless to say it took ages to dry and looks very thick. I could not decide which bottle to hold, so I made a group bottle pictures instead :) My favorite is spiral on the thumb, that's why I plan to repeat this mani using gradients and spirals.
