Today is the first day of spring! Mentally, I am already barreling towards summer!

Here is my last dark nail look for winter.  I also tried my hand at gradient nails, with one accent nail.  It came out ok, but I definitely need more practice.

Main colour: Zoya Petra

Accent nail: Base: Zoya Pinta

Gradient: Zoya Ziv  +  China Glaze Medallion

What colours are you looking forward to using now that the weather is getting warmer?
