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?
Beauty Secrets Base Coat
OPI a grape fit
ORLY Wild Wisteria
Seche Vite top coat
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 it is indoors
If anyone wants a tutorial on this comment below 🙂
First i applied my base coat and applied one coat of Veniques Wingtip White
next i did my ombre with a regular makeup sponge and the CG flip flop fantasy and shocking pink.
then i used my BM plate 506 with my Wet n Wild Black Creme and applied a health coat of Seche Vite
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.
