A "syrup manicure" is basically a variation on a gradient manicure using a single color of jelly polish. The result is a fade from light to dark and the jelly effect makes it look like kind of like you dipped your nails in syrup. Weird, I know (apparently it's big in Korea)... but kind of neat looking and something I've been wanting to try out. When I first laid eyes on Zoya Frida I was struck by the polish's resemblance to a certain vile tasting but singularly effective nighttime cold remedy (you know... the "coughing sniffling sneezing..." one)... so I present to you: cough syrup nails!
This was my first attempt at a gradient of any kind, so it didn't turn out perfectly. But it was pretty easy to do and I think I'll get better with practice. Mmm... look at that teal jelly goodness.
