Happy Tuesday everyone!
We’re quickly speeding through February, can you believe we’re already half way through? Kind of crazy! Today I have a super fun gradient design to share. I’ve been kind of obsessed with gradients lately–I go through fazes, & now that I’m all stocked up on my Edge Perfection I’ve been a little gradient crazy.
For today’s design, I was feeling pink. I wanted something a little Valentine’s Day-esque without being too over the top. I started out with the gradient, then added some holo glitter. & then I thought–why not some stamping too? I was a bit scared it was all going to be too much, but I think because I didn’t use contrasting colours, the whole design really works together.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
- Base Coat: Quo by Orly Breathable Kiss Me, I’m Kind
- Top Coat: Seche Vive
- Joe Fresh Cotton Candy
- Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mauve Over
- China Glaze Life is Rosy
- Quo by Orly Falling Star
- Essie No Place like Chrome
- Born Pretty Store Image Plate BP-L006 (item #17924)
- Edge Perfection Cuticle Barrier
I’m really loving this gradient!
& obviously I took some macro shots! You see the holo glitters much better this way, since my desk lamp doesn’t show them off as well as I would like. Also it shows off the blend on this gradient, which I have to admit, I’m pretty proud of. Especially since my early gradients looked something like this.
I’m so happy with this whole design! I know it’s not oh my god Valentine’s Day, but it’s pretty & pink & what is more lovely than that?
What do you think of this design? Do you like all the layers, or do you think it’s too busy? Let me know your thoughts in the comments below!
