Allo polish Pals!
How is your weekend going? I hope you guys are having fun! I'm still pretty damn sick so today's manicure was created in between naps and rest! You wouldn't believe how incredibly skilled I am at sleep with wet nails, haha :) Today I am showing you a matte gradient manicure featuring Hollow Rounds from They have so many lovely nail art pieces at a great price.I'd also love to know if there are any previous manicures I have done that you would like to see turned in a pictorial?
These Hollow Rounds in Azure are a great way to add some funk to your manicure; They have quite a few different shades on the website and are wonderfully priced. I really like that you also get the tiny centers so you can use the smaller pieces too. I had no problem applying these and they where perfectly sized to sit comfortably on the nail bed without any over hang or snag-abillity issues. They are highly reflective and shiny but they also look really unique when applied with a matte topcoat.

I started off with two coats of Pupa's 'Pearly Green' and created a gradient blend using Rimmel's 'Azure' and Jacava's 'Chillax' on the tips. I applied my topcoat and added the hollow rounds using a fine dotting tool. I then took Rimmel's 'Pear Drop' and added some small connecting dots. I finally sealed the hollow rounds with another layer of topcoat and finished with Model's Own Matte topcoat.

What do you guys think of this manicure? Have you tried adding a matte topcoat to shiny nail art accessories?

Have a great day/evening!
