China Glaze Shower Together with sponged gradient and Lynnderella Thank Blue

Recently I had a great swap with Kesha from Nail Polish Obsession. One of the polishes I got in this swap was an oldie, but goodie, China Glaze Shower Together. This beautiful teal creme was released with the Ecollection for spring 2008. I don’t own anything like it, and I absolutely love it!

Shower Together was nice and easy to apply. The formula is a tiny bit on the runny side, but nothing bad. It looks kinda jelly-ish on the first coat, but it’s creamy and opaque in two regular coats.

I can never leave a creme mani alone, so I decided to try a sponged gradient à la The Nailasaurus. I don’t have any pictures of this, because I suck, but check out Sammy’s awesome tutorial for how to do it. This method creates a smoother, more airbrushed gradient look compared to the sponging technique I’ve showed you earlier. I used China Glaze Calypso Blue for the blue tips here.

So finally, I just had to futz with this mani a little more. (Is it just me, or do you guys too feel like you need three components to a “nail art” mani?) I added a coat of Lynnderella Thank Blue!, a turquoise glitterbomb from the Funny Money collection. I’m totally and utterly in love with how this looks, and my head is spinning with the possibilities of other gradient/glitter combos!

How do you like this combination? What other pairings would you love to see? Check out my spreadsheet (click “Stash” in the header of the blog) and let me know in the comments if you have any ideas!
