Aladdin's flying carpet

Welcome!  My first post is inspired by the Flying Carpet in Disney's movie, Aladdin.  The base color is China Glaze 'Flying Dragon' and I created a sponge gradient using Orly 'La Playa'.  I then stamped it with an image from BM214 using China Glaze 'Passion'.  I was honestly surprised by CG's Flying Dragon. I did not expect it at all to be matte.  But, that doesn't really matter I suppose when you add a top coat.  I LOVE how you can see the blue sparkles in it... which make it blend really well with La Playa.  It's such a pretty color.

What do you think?  Thanks for looking!


  1. Haha, silly me, but what do you mean by 'sponge gradient'? :3

    1. Lol, it's ok Amanda! I will make a tutorial sometime. It's where you take a makeup sponge and create a gradient, so it fades without harsh lines

  2. I never noticed how beautiful Aladin's Magic Carpet was until you posted it. Well, it can also be a tattoo.

    @aparadiseaway: It's just like Photoshopping real life, LOL.
