Nails: Creating a Pink to Purple Gradient
I have a feeling there will be alot of gradient effects on my nails until I've used up all the colour combinations I think would look shnazzy...
Pastel pink > Darker pink > Dark plum shade
Sitting infront of my computer getting ready to study and I realised that I have not painted my nails in two days! So I hopped on over to my drawer and pulled out my recently purchased OPI in Mod About You and swiped away. And for an even bigger reason to procrastinate, I didn't want to have plain jane nails so I decided to gradientify it with a few extra polishes.
L>R: OPI - Mod About You, Ulta3 - Strawberry Sundae & Ulta3 - Mulberry
(Check out this post for more pics of how I do my gradient nails too!)
Mod about you! I never noticed this until I was editing this photo, but the plastic part of the nail brush has 'OPI' embossed on it! (Arrow pointing)
1. Two coats
Ulta3's Strawberry Sundae, a gorgeous pink but too kiddish on its own.
2. Layer one - Sponge on 2/3 of the way down
3. Layer two - Sponge 3/5 of the way down
4. Layer three - Sponge 1/3 of the way down
I was going to leave it at this, but it was too nicki-minaj-y for me
Ulta3's Mulberry. This is the shade I've been wearing on my toes since I purchased this nail polish (Over six months ago!)
5. Sponge lightly 1/2 of the way down, repeat until you reach the opacity you desire!
6. Clean up (Two days late of taking this pic...).. And Voila!
On my right hand I decided to skip the pink and went straight into Mulberry after two coats of Mod About You.
I like it!
