Reverse Gradient With Sinful Colors Ice Dream

       Hi everyone!  I hope you all had a great Tuesday.  I only had to work a half day today because the weather was so crappy!  But I got a lot done today.  I went to Ace, bought some pegboard, spray paint, hooks, and organized my kitchen.  It looks so good!  I'm glad I didn't just sit on my butt all afternoon, like I usually do!
     Today I have one of the winter polishes that Sinful Colors released last month.  This color is called Ice Dream.  I researched Ice Dream a little bit before I wrote this post and I found out that it is a dupe for China Glaze Lorelei's Tiara, and Sally Hansen Gem Crush in Showgirl Chic.  I don't own either of these polishes so I can't show you, but you can click on the links to see the comparisons.  I didn't want to just wear Ice Dream by itself, so I decided to wear it over black.  Then I remembered this mani for a reverse gradient from A Polish Addict.  I love how this turned out!

Base coat: Sally Hansen Triple Strong Advanced Nail Gel Fortifier
Base coat: Black Creme from Wet N' Wild - 1 coat
Accent nail: Ice Dream from Sinful Colors - 2 coats
The gradient was done with one coat of Ice Dream
Top coat: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip Top Coat

I hope you like my nails and my kitchen!!
