I was looking forward to today's challenge. I fell in love with the gradient technique a little while ago and will do it anytime I get a chance. The only thing that was stopping me from doing it more often was the clean up process. Well, not anymore....more on that later.
On to today's challenge - The Girly Gradient!!
What do you think? This screams girl and valentines day.
I used Sally Hansen White On as a base and sponged a combo of Sally Hansen Rapid Red, Urban Outfitters Hot Tub, Sally Hansen Rose Rush and White On and a coat of Northern Lights (not pictured). Before I started sponging I brushed a thin coat of Liquid Latex around my cuticles (anywhere it gets messy) and it made this mani so much easier. Virtually no clean up!! It takes a little patience to get it brushed neatly and not on the nail itself, but totally worth it in the time it saves in clean up. I bought this little bottle here and it will probably last me forever (about half as much as Liquid Palisade for twice as much...yes please!).
I also stamped a quick heart using a BM plate and Konad white (didn't stamp well for some reason..but it cant always be perfect) and added a little rhinestone heart for a little extra sparkle!
Please go check out the other participants of this challenge and share the love!
