NOTD: Spring Dreams

5 years ago

I enjoy doing gradient nails and I really wanted to work something together with soft, pastel shades. I rummaged around my collection and found 3 colors that I felt would look nice together. The gradient here starts with a pink at the base and works its way down to a blue at the tips. I have seen people say that it isn`t ideal to create a gradient on short nails. I have to disagree. I don`t think there is an ideal length... it can be done, and quite easily, on any length. Right now, my nails are very short and there were no issues blending down three different polishes together.
WHAT I`M WEARING: 1 coat of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails 1 coat of Sinful Colors Beautiful Girl on entire nail 1 coat of Milani Hot Pink on entire nail With a small craft sponge I worked 2/3 up the nail and sponged on Milani Orchidia With the same small craft sponge I worked 1/3 up the nail and sponged on Studio M. Whose That Girl 1 coat of Milani Diamond Dazzle on entire nail 1 coat of Seche Vite Using Red Angel plate RA102 and Konad special polish in white I stamped on the flowers and swirl design 1 final coat of Seche Vite I hadn`t planned on layering two pinks to start out this manicure, but when I chose Milani Hot Pink it didn`t occur right away that it was very, very sheer and would take a lot of layers to build it up to be opaque. Instead of making this manicure thick with multiple coats, I just decided to layer it with something that was quite opaque. Sinful Colors Beautiful Girl is good for creating a solid starting point for the base color. I`m really enjoying this manicure. As long as it doesn`t wear quickly, I`ll probably keep this on for several days. It has a very girly, whimsical, carefree kind of feel to it. It is dreamy... LOL! I have to admit, I am very pleased with the outcome of this manicure.
