Seafoam & Grey Gradient

This mani is my way of transitioning to Fall.  The seafoam green represents the bright color of the ocean that I will miss swimming in until next summer and the grey is the impending gloom of fall and winter with the bare trees, cold nights and (gasp!) snow.  Okay, maybe I'm being a little dramatic, but I hate being cold!  I'll try to be positive.  Fall isn't so bad, we have the changing leaves, pumpkin beer, apple picking, and a lot of candy for Halloween.  

The colors I used are Essie Where's My Chauffeur? and Zoya Dove.  I'm totally digging this color combo.

I learned my favorite gradient method from this video on YouTube:  HannahRoxNails gradient tutorial.  I like it because you don't have to pour out a ton of polish and it's not as messy as using a sponge.  If you have avoided the gradient look because of the messy sponge method, I highly recommend you try this one out.  I buy 12-packs of soft-tip eye shadow applicators from CVS for $2.99 and they work great.  

How are you all handling the cooler weather?  Unless, of course, you live somewhere that's always warm and in that case, I am jealous!!   xoxoxo ~V
