My Nails for the Israeli Independence Day

April 17, 2013

For the Israeli Independence day I decided to create this white and blue manicure, inspired by the Israeli flag.
I really love creating nail art with gradients, I think this is a simple way to create beautiful designs.
For this manicure I used China Glaze - Hanging In The Balance and Wet n Wild - White French Creme to create the gradient, and on top of that I used a beautiful glitter coat by Innisfree - 109. I really love this glitter top coat, it's very delicate and pretty, it consists of white glitter mix (hex, square and bar glitter) and some square iridescent glitter (I wish there were more, I really love this kind of glitter in polishes) in a clear base. 
Innisfree is a Korean brand, and a good one I must say. For some reason, many Korean nail polish brands tend to have really strong (and sometimes unbearable) smell, but this brand doesn't, so it's really great for me. Their polishes are also so original and have so many glitter and flakes mixes which is not easy for me to find, so thanks to eBay, I'm able to get this brand. For now I have two polishes from Innisfree, but I have more on their way to me so I'm going to be one happy girl!

I decided to try making a tutorial video for this nail art, I hope you will like it and find it useful. In this tutorial I will show you how to create the gradient nail art as shown in this post.
Hope you'll enjoy it, let me know what you think!
