Today I have another gradient... big surprise :)!!! I really love doing gradients, but I hate the clean up... So I thought about it and figured I'd try using tape just like when you would do a water marble (which I still can't seem to do).
I did my base coat, Essence "Can't Cheat On Me", and then taped off all my nails, like so:
"Can't Cheat On Me" is a nice scattered holo. I didn't realize it until I first used it. You can totally tell when you look at the bottle, I just wasn't paying attention when I bought it :)
Love this polish!!!
For the gradient I used 3 colors from the China Glaze Summer Neons Collection: "Surfin' For Boys" "I'm With The Lifeguard" and "Sun-Kissed"
This was a mani I did a little while ago so it was before I learned about the painting the polish on the sponge technique. The polishes don't fade as nicely but I still like the out come.
"Surfin' For Boys"
"I'm With The Lifeguard"
I'm really loving this collection so far. Since this mani I've picked up a few more from the collection. "I'm With The Lifeguard" is not in my top 5 favorite greens. I even made sure to by a back up bottle since I have a feeling I will be using it a lot!! :)
I some what recently bought some polish from a blog sale on The TraceFace Philes blog. Most of them are new brands to me so I was excited to get them.
Teeez "Femme Fatale", Duri "I Don't Kiss and Tell", Misa "Sisterhood" & "Sweet Pleasure"
Chelsea "Dip It Low", China Glaze Crackle "Concrete", and 3 Golden Rose holos
The only one of of these brands I've tried before was China Glaze, all the rest are new to me :) I've very happy with what I got. She still had a ton of stuff left, if your interested go take a look: The TraceFace Philes Blog Sale
