Guest Post from Bénédicte of I'm A Nail Art Addict

Hey guys!!  Even though I'm back from the US now I still have one more guest post to share with you.   Bénédicte was kind enough to write this up for me and today is a great day to post it since I'm not feeling so hot this week and don't feel up to writing a post myself.  Enjoy this gorgeous nail art she did!

Hi everyone! I'm Bénédicte from I'm A Nail Art Addict and this my very first guest post =)
I'm a big fan of Ashley, her manicures are always sooo beautiful ♥ and I think she's the most pinned blogger on my Pinterest boards!!! So, yeah, I'm really excited to have my nails on her blog!!! :P

The mani I'm going to show you is inspired by the very talented French blogger Tartofraises.
Ophélie was wearing this Miami Beach nail art when I met her at the "Mondial Spa & Beauté" exhibition in Paris in March. I liked it so much that I had to copy this nail art :)


As you can see, Ophélie is way more talented than me, but I still like the final result. Unfortunately, I don't have neon nail polishes so I had to use bright colors instead... and it's not even a true rainbow gradient cause when I did this manicure I didn't have a bright blue in my stash :/






To create the "rainbow" gradient I used the following polishes : Illamasqua Obsess, OPI Call Me Gwen-ever, Cult Nails Feel Me Up, Essence Lime Up, piCture pOlish Wisteria.
I then added a coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust.
For the "floral" designs, I used my Flexbrush black and silver glitter stripers.


Hope you like this mani as much as I did =D

And thank you so much Ashley for letting me write a guest post for you!
