I'm really loving gradients. There are so many color combinations it's almost endless. I tried a different technique this time then I usually do. What I've done before is dipping small pieces of a makeup sponge into the polish, but this time I painted the polish right on to the sponge and I really like the result a lot better then how I use to do it, so I think this will be the way I go from now on :)
I know that most people do a base coat using one of the colors in the gradient, but I like to be different so I use a different color lol
For my base coat I used 2 coats of essie "pink-a-boo" It's a very pretty polish, but the formula is kinda a pain to work with, well for me anyways.
It's hard to tell but there is a really pretty blue and pink shimmer in it.
For the actual gradient I used Orly "Oh Cabana Boy" and....
Cos Bar un-named purple. This is a new line they are carrying at Target. There is a total of 4 polishes, but none of them have a name :( Such a shame.
I really like how this came out but I felt like it was missing something.
So I added O.P.I. "Pirouette My Whistle" on my ring fingers....
But I don't think it was a good choice :( I'm not totally happy with it, oh well they can't all be winners lol
It's still very pretty to look at, I just wish I would have chosen a different glitter or had just left it be.
Well I'm sure there will be a lot more gradients in my future so this is a lesson learned :)
