Guest post at Josephine's World

Hi,
Today I'll show you a guest post I wrote for one of my favourite blogs, Josephine's World. If you haven't seen it yet, it's worth visiting - her manicures are really pretty. 

I've been thinking of what manicure I should prepare, and I've decided to do something that any of you can do with things you have at home: a dish-washing sponge or a make-up sponge, striping tape and three close nuances of nail polish.

On my ring finger, I started with a no-name light pink base colour. I cut several pieces of striping tape and put them randomly on the nails. After that, I applied a coat of red polish (I used Illamasqua -Allara) and I waited for a few minutes so as to dry. I finished with a clear top coat. 
If you don't know where to buy the striping tape, I got mine from Born Pretty store. 

On the rest of the nails, I started with a white base colour (I used Illamasqua -Scorch). On a sponge, I created a gradient of red, dark pink and light pink polish and I applied it on the nail as you can see in the picture below. I finished with a clear top coat.

If you don't like the red-pink combo you may use any colours you like. What do you think?

This was my first guest post on another blog and I really enjoyed it. I even thought of creating
a series of guest posts on my blog. Would anyone be interested in writing a guest post for
Konad Addict?
