Neon Gradient and Glitter Manicure

While drawing in the UCSC Arboretum I found these amazing yellow flowers that proved to be a perfect background for my manicure. I used a Formula X glitter polish for my pinky and ring fingers and then for the remaining six nails, I used acrylic paint to sponge on some gradients in various directions. 

Nasty Womyn Nails

In response to the political climate and in solidarity with the Women's March, I decided to write on my nails "Nasty Womyn." Granted I didn't have a lot of time for this manicure, the simple letters seemed to be important enough to take up the entire manicure. 

I used a nice dark red shimmery color and then white acrylic paint to create the lettering. I added in some polka dots and called it a day.
