Transitional Pastel Gradient

It's Tuesday and I'm back in blogger mode! Things are getting back to normal with work (whatever normal is, maybe I mean 'usual'!) and I feel like I have some time to myself for the first time in forever!

And this is the first blog I'm writing on my new laptop, so I am extra excited about that :) I can tell you that it's a HP and it's blue, other than that I can't help you! But I love it so far....

Anyway, onto today's mani.

I have been feeling the setting in of Autumn recently. Probably because it's pissed down with rain all day today. The famous UK Summer!! However, it got me thinking that maybe it's time to try some transitional nails to take me through to Autumn, whilst still clinging on to the shreds of Summer that are slowly fading away!!

I had to feature my favourite Summer collection, the Color Club Poptastic Pastel Neons, somewhere. I finally decided to use 'Under the Blacklight', the highlighter yellow shade, in a gradient with Barry M Gelly Nail Paint in Coconut. To take it darker and more Autumn appropriate, I added some striping tape in diagonal lines and added Essie's Bobbing for Baubles to the sides.

I'm pleased with how the mani came out, and it actually looks how it was meant to, or how I saw it in my brain anyway. So that's always nice (and rare)!

I hope you're all having a fabulous week, I'm still counting down to my hols... 4 weeks today!!

Thank you for reading :)
