Round gradient cyclone: don't get sucked in

So I did this mani back in January shortly after my middle nail saw the true death, which explains my much shorter nails in these pics. Idk why it took me forever to edit these up - wait I do know - I have no time thanks to NAIL PORN it's the hottest thing on the street, don't cha know?

In any case enjoy these round gradient neon pink and purple nails topped with a black cyclone. Reminds me of Cheshire the cat from Alice in Wonderland. I like cats so, makes sense.

Excuse my ghostly jaundice-plagued skin tone, blame the intense neon for scaring the fack out of my camera.

I used the original cyclone nail vinyls from Twinkled T to create the spiral look and Liquid Palisade cuticle protector (the purple stuff) to protect my skin from the gradient sponging. Have you seen my review of 6 peel-off cuticle protector products yet? Check it out here!

This is how small of a section of sponge I used to work around the nail to create the circle gradient effect:

That's all for now! Now go lay down, you're dizzy.

Polishes used:
- Cult Nails 'Nevermore' (black creme)
- Cult Nails 'Tempest' (white creme for base, not pictured)
- Finger Paints 'Pop art purple' (neon magenta purple)
- Orly 'Beach cruiser' (neon pink)
- Ceramic Glaze 'Tropical guava' (light neon pink)

  6. semi trucks accidents
    In the relentless rhythm of the highway, semi-trucks dance a dangerous ballet. Their massive frames barrel down the asphalt, carrying precious cargo and heavy responsibility. Yet, sometimes, fate intervenes with a deafening crash. Metal twists and tears, lives shattered in an instant. Families left grieving, hearts heavy with loss. Each accident a stark reminder of the fragility of life, urging caution and vigilance on the open road. Amidst the wreckage, hope rises for safer journeys ahead.
