NOTM: Pink to Blue Gradient with a touch of Whimsical!

5 years ago

Just a few days ago, I was gifted a polish that I have been dying to get by the Lovely /member/YazG. I have been dying to have my hands on this polish ever since I first heard about it on Nouveau Cheap but it`s only available in stores that are not in close range to where I live. The polish I am talking about is
Revlon`s Whimsical. Whimsical is a sheer pale blue jelly with chunky pink and blue glitters. It is supposedly a dupe for
Deborah Lippman`s Glitter in the Air polish. This polish works best as a top coat than it does alone. From what I have seen on blogs 3-4 coats still show a nail line. I love how it softens up a polish when it is used as a top coat. When I first saw the polish I knew I wanted to do a pink and blue manicure. Initially I wanted to do an ombre nail look but I didn`t have the right polishes to transition the colors. So I opted to do a gradient look. I really like how it turned out but I think it would have looked better if my nails were longer.
How? ~ 1.) Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Base Coat ~ 2.) OPI`s Make Love (2 coats) ~ 3.) Sponge on China Glaze`s Sea Spray to achieve the gradient effect, concentration on the tips. ~ 4.) Revlon`s Whimsical (2 coats) ~ 5.) Unshaken INM Out the Door Northern Lights topcoat. The sponge I used was a little too airy so it left a lot of bumps and small dead space but after I used Revlon`s Whimsical all of the flaws in the gradient pretty much disappeared. It smoothed everything out and soften up the Pink color as well to make it transition to blue a lot better. I really enjoy this look and will definitely try again once my nails grow out.
Do you have Revlon`s whimsical? Do you like gradient nails? Hope you enjoy my nail look. More to come soon so don`t forget to
