Hello Hello Hello,
I don’t think I’ve ever posted a glitter gradient here before. If I have then I guess it didn’t overly impress me enough to remember it. I had a mini bottle of Candeo Colors Mallard for some time now and I could’t figure out what I wanted to layer it over. Then I picked up Zoya Tracie and saw it as the perfect fit for a Mallard gradiant.
Tracie is from the Zoya Beach Collection and is best described as a soft pistachio green with a frosty finish. The frost is just slight so its not too pearly, but its still not a cream.
Mallard by Candeo Colors is just a glitter bomb by itself. Theres so many glitters I cannot really pick them all out, but its mostly of green, purple and silver holo glitter from micro to chunky hex. I’ve loved every Candeo polish I’ve tried because of the amazing combinations of glitter and great quality, Mallard did not disappoint.
In case you are curious, for my gradient I used a make up sponge and tore an edge off to give it texture. Then dabbed Mallard onto it directly from the brush and sponged upward from the tip of my nail about a quarter way to half way up. I prefer to apply polish directly from brush to sponge instead of pouring polish out onto a surface then dipping my sponge. I feel like I get better control by knowing how much the sponge picked up and I’m not waisting any excess polish.
So do you like? I’m pretty pleased with this one
