Day 10: (Extreme) Gradient Nails
Day 10 of the 31 Day Nail Polish Challenge: Gradient Nails.
I did this mani specifically as a gradient, using every polish, in order, from my Mini Kleancolor Metallics set (apart from Aqua, which I gave to my mother). I didn’t think ahead to how rainbow-ish they looked – and that, as a gradiant – it’s pretty extreme. Hey, nail polish as an extreme sport – it could take off 😀
Here they are! This is one coat of all of them, starting with Orange, then I sponged on gradient layers to Green, Sapphire, Fuschia (which looked pink until I topcoated it and then it looked purple), and then Black on the tips. This was such a quick and easy manicure, and I loved looking at it, although the fact that the green stipe is wider than the rest did bother me a touch. So I slapped OCD Ami and just ignored her from then on 😀
The top coat was Orly In a Snap, and because there were so few coats and it was sponged on (using less polish than normal), it dried super fast and lasted well. I received quite a few comments and compliments on my ‘colourful!’ nails 🙂
And then, being me, I holographised it with Dreamy by Darling Diva Polish (the spectraflair top coat), and it looked like this…
Which I also loved. 😀
Have a great day!
