May SquareHue Box

The Passport Collection: Rio

These colors just scream carnival to me! Granted, all I really know is what I saw from the movie Rio, but that's what these instantly reminded me of.

First up we have Ipanema. A bright golden yellow microglitter. This is 3 coats, no top coat.

 Next is Leblon, a kelly green shimmer. This is 3 coats, no top coat.

Last is Copacabana, a bright, gorgeous blue glitter. This one is packed full of turquoise and holographic glitter. The picture absolutely doesn't do it justice. It's an amazing glitter bomb. I used 4 coats with no top coat for this swatch. It could use some undies though for more opacity.

 I think SquareHue nailed this month! Stay tuned next month for The Passport Collection: Maui.

Quilted Reciprocal Gradient

Since the last time I did a reciprocal gradient, I've been really wanting to try it again. I just needed to carve out the time! For this one I did something a little different, instead of just stripes, I decided to put the tape in a quilt pattern. I absolutely love the way it turned out!
The colors I used were NYC- Boundless Berry, Color Club- Sweet Pea, and Color Club- Blushing Rose.

This is probably one of my favorite manis to date!
