Dr.'s Remedy Hopeful & a sponge gradient mani

Yesterday I started off showing y'all the summer trio from Dr.'s Remedy with Youthful.  Today I have Hopeful.  I'm going to start with the polish itself as my nail art attempt was a fail IMO.

Above I used 2 coats and no top coat.  I put this on my toes the other day and I'm totally in LOVE.  It's like a Barbie/bubblegum pink.  The first coat was sheer, almost like a jelly but it's a cream.

Dr.'s Remedy says "HOPEFUL Hot Pink: Hello Kitty never had it so good; this shade of pink is ever gal's new best pal, no doubt."

I had bubbles with this one too(forgot about the ceiling fan), but they're subtle.

NOW, to the fail art.  I wanted to try the wet sponge gradient mani's I've seen all over Pinterest & some of the other blogs, but it didn't turn out too well for me.  I think next time I'll stick with the dry sponge.

I wet a make-up sponge and brushed Grateful, then Youthful, then Hopeful and rolled it onto my nails.  As you'll see with my index finger, I forgot to look at the placement.  I did use a top coat, but it didn't blend it out much.  I almost forgot the tip I have for this mani.  I took a lip balm stick and rubbed it around my nail onto my fingers so that clean-up would be easier and it worked like a charm.

  1. I like the gradient...looks really cool! I haven't been surfing much...what's the wet sponging about? I've done the dry sponge and totally sucked at it. :)
