Today I have a special treat for you. My pal Courtney, you may know her as Phyrra, is sharing a beautiful purple gradient nail art look with us. You know how much I love purple so I flipped when I laid eyes on her design.

Looking at the Zoya Naturel collection as a whole, you can see how the six shades of skin flattering neutrals fall easily into pairs that can be used for multi-colored manicures or nail art.
