Purple Gradient/Ombre

So I have had this idea for a while for a purple gradient, however i don’t feel as if im too great at gradients. To get better at gradients i have to practice though don’t i?

Today’s products:

Beauty Secrets Base Coat

OPI a grape fit

ORLY Wild Wisteria

Seche Vite top coat

cosmetic wedge

 

So i started out with A grape fit on the whole nail prior to sponging on wild wisteria with a cosmetic wedge. Ignore the nail oil in the first picture my nails need some type of moisturizing treatment soon. The winter love to make my skin dry and icky.

Here’s a close up of the nail

it came out a little patchy i might have pushed down a little hard or it might be too thin. I used my new Messy Mansion squishy stamper I’m so used to using my Winstonia Squishy firm. I bought the Messy Mansion squishy stamper because i really needed a stamper that would stretch out my smaller images and I’m glad i got it. i don’t quite have the hang of it yet but i think ill get better at it. I used it today with this manicure seeing as my nails are long right now and the plate images are just a bit too small for my long nail beds and not wide enough for my thumb.
