Happy Birthday Béné! (I'm A Nail Art Addict) - Moi aussi je suis une addict!

Hi everyone! Today I have a special post today (along with some other lovely bloggers) to wish a Happy Birthday to my friend Bénédicte a.k.a. I'm A Nail Art Addict (I'm Anaa!).

Bénédicte is an awesome friend and nail artist! I have followed her blog for a long time and love her swatches and nail art!

Being a fellow nail art addict I have decided to recreate one of my favourite manicures Béné has done on her blog! Like her, I am a HUGE Elevation Polish fan and I really loved this manicure she did back in August 2013 featuring Elevation Polish Avalanche.

In her manicure Bénédicte used Agnès b. Swimming blue, Kiko 295 Cerulean Blue and Kiko 340 Light Blue. As I don't own those polishes I used some of other blue cremes to create a similar look.

I chose Zoya Phoebe, Essie Avenue Maintain and Sinful Colors Sugar Rush and used a sponge to gradient over a base coat of the Zoya.

I then topped things off with Elevation Polish Avalanche and a coat of topcoat.

I love this manicure, thanks for the inspiration Bénédicte! Have a very Happy Birthday! 

Elevation polishes can be purchased from the Elevation Polish store and Llarowe. 
Zoya polishes can be purchased from the Zoya website
Sinful Colors and Essie can be purchased from various retailers.
