Welcome to day 14 of 31 Day Challenge 2013 (relaxed version): Gradient Nails. Not going to lie, I was a bit scared of this one. My last year's gradient nail turned into an ombre attempt which failed and turned into a comparison post. But this year I am trying to concur fears and suck it up. Well I put on my big girl panties and was totally thrilled to find how easy a gradient nail is! :) I can't wait to try more and perfect my gradient!
I used OPI Dutch 'Ya Just Love OPI (a gorgeous purple with a red/pink shimmer, two coats) and Barry M Silver Foil. The above picture is without a top coat and therefore still looks a bit rough and bumpy. My camera had issues capture this gradient but I love it!
Here it is again with HK Girl top coat. I love how the red/pink shimmer in Dutch 'Ya plays with the silver and makes an almost holo effect! How cool is that! To help with my gradient I followed The Nailasaurus' Gradient Tutorial (easy to follow!). In fact she did a gradient later on using purple and silver! :)
Don't forget to check out the other ladies and their gradients!
