Gradient WIN.

Hello my lovelies!
I was originally going to try one of those "swoop" manicures I've been seeing around the place with these colours.

But I can't draw straight lines. Ack.
So instead i broke out the sponges I used for zombie-toes and has my first ever crack at a PROPER gradient mani.

I'm immensely impressed with how well I did!
It looks so much brighter in real life.

As you can see up close you can see sections that look blotchy and a bit weird, but even I'm not looking that close IRL.

I think I might keep this one on longer than I anticipated.

Also - i'm feeling a bit better but still can't sleep though the night due to pain. Going to hospital today. Wish me luck. :)

Good luck today! I hate it that you are in such pain - and no sleep is NOT fun!

I love the look of this mani - did you "deconstruct" it or sponge the colors separately?


Nicole said...

This is GORGEOUS! I love it. I think you did a great job with it.
Oh, good luck at the hospital! I hope they help you out. Feel better!

Toxin said...

yardsticks 4 lunatics - i did a pink base then sponged the darker pink then sponged the purple. I don't even know where i'd start on a deconstructed mani!

Nicole - thanks so much doll!
