Summer Gradient by Kayla Shevonne

Hey there!

This is Kayla from Nails by Kayla Shevonne. I’m quite honoured to be posting on the KBShimmer blog today! I absolutely love KBShimmer nail polishes and it’s the indie brand that I own the most of by far! So when Christy asked me to write a guest post, I had a pretty good idea what type of manicure I wanted to do.


To create this bright and fun nail look, I first layed down a base of a plain white creme and let that dry completely. I then pulled out KBShimmer Don’t Pink Twice and 24 Carrot Bold, both of which are beautiful matte shimmer polishes from the Summer 2013 Collection, and I used the sponging method to create a gradient with them. Next, I added two easy coats of KBShimmer Grayscale, a super fun black and white glitter top coat that was also released with the Summer 2013 Collection. Finally, I finished the whole look off with the KBShimmer Clearly On Top Quick Dry Top Coat.


Don’t Pink Twice and 24 Carrot Bold blend together beautifully, so the mani looked pretty awesome even before I added Grayscale. But I think the contrast of the black and white glitter over the super bright pink and orange really makes the whole mani pop.


Thanks so much to Christy for inviting me to do a guest post on her blog. I hope to do one again someday. And if you’re interested in seeing more of my work, please visit my blog Nails by Kayla Shevonne.
