Guest Post from Ashley of Ashley Is PolishAddicted

Hey guys!  Today's guest post is from a lady who was one of my very first blogger friends.  I helped her get a lemming of hers not long after I entered this wonderful world of nail polish obsession, and she welcomed me into some nail groups where I have made friends with so many amazing women.  I'm very grateful that we made friends.  She is Ashley from Ashley Is PolishAddicted.  Thanks so much for being here today, Ashley!  Keep reading to see the nail art she's done for you guys today!


Hello lovely Smashley Sparkles readers! I was so happy to do a guest post for Ashley to help her out while she's traveling! My name is also Ashley and I also happen to have the same favorite color combo as Ashley - purple and green! I thought it only fitting that I do some purple and green nail art for my guest post!

For this mani I started off with what is probably the best purple polish ever - AquaDaisy Shazaam. Shazaam is a one-coat purple holo that dries almost instantly. After it dried I used some striping tape to make random lines towards the tip of my nail. (Please excuse my extreme nubbiness, I recently suffered a couple of breaks.) I then sponged Kiko Sugar Mat 643 over the tape to create a "laser" look.  I love doing nail art with textured polishes - they are easy to work with and the make blending gradients much easier. 

The color in my photos is a bit washed out. Shazaam is a bit more red toned and the Kiko is but more intense. The last photo is truest to color. 

I hope you enjoyed this mani! I really loved it and enjoyed wearing it! This look is so easy to create and didn't take very long at all!

Thanks for reading and happy polishing! ♥
