With New Year's nearly here, I had to come up with something special. I'll be wearing this amazing dress I found that has a gradient of light blue to dark charcoal running through it, covered in silver lines. It's so pretty and it just had to have matching nails! This was my first attempt at a non-glitter gradient and I'm really happy with how it turned out.
For the gradient I used OPI "I Want to be A-Lone Star", Sally Hansen "Gun Shot" and Sally Hansen Complete Manicure "Black Platinum". On top, mimicking the lines is a silver glitter nail art polish I found at Dollarama. I've experimented with a couple of different applicators for gradients and using an eye-shadow sponge seemed to work well here. I have to practice as it isn't the smoothest transition but at least the colours are a close match.
As much as I love the colour of the OPI it shows the brush strokes and is difficult to apply. The Black Platinum was also really transparent - I'd have loved a slightly better finish on the tips.
Anyway, I can't wait for tomorrow night!
Once again, I'm still learning about this blogging business, I'd love to hear any and all feedback!
Thanks for reading!
Wow - I love what you do! Do you do your nails every day? I was given some nail things for Christmas so maybe I'll try some of your suggestions! Keep up the good work!ReplyDelete
