Gradient Nails!

I'm sure that everyone has heard of Gradient Nails, and if you don't... I don't know where you've been for the past 3 or 4 months. Gradient Nails are so quick and easy, plus they look great! I'm not really going to go into much depth on how to do them, so you can check out THIS great picture tutorial by The Nailasaurus!

On my Haul from Oklahoma City (Click HERE), a lot of you commented that you liked Sally Hansen Sun Kissed! So I used it in the gradient!


Before anyone says anything, yes, I do know that I have a kink on my pointer finger, and yes, I do know that it looks really bad!

I started with base coat, and then painted on 2 coats of Sally Hansen Sun Kissed. After that, I followed the tutorial to create a gradient with Sun Kissed and Nails Inc Piccadilly Circus. Then, I finished off with a coat of Seche Vite.

I am really into the gradient effect! When I wore this manicure, I got a ton of compliments! It was messy and hard to clean up, but I can get past that! However, I didn't really like this gradient a lot. I just think I need a little more practice with the gradient! But I'm sure I'll get it!

By the way, today, I'm leaving for a trip to Florida! I'll be gone for a week, but don't worry, I have posts scheduled, plus I'll have internet! :)

So what do you think? Tell me! Do you like the gradient effect? Have you tried it? Did it take you some practice to get it down correctly? Thanks for reading and commenting!

  2. Nice, I like the color combination! I have seen this style but have not tried it yet, for some reason I always thought it would be hard to do, but this might just be the inspiration I needed :) Have a great time on your trip!

    1. Thank you! I've seeing gradients around for about 4 or 5 months now, but I always shied away from doing one because I thought it would be hard! It was SOOOO easy! I really suggest trying it! Tell me when you try a gradient and I'll check out your post! :)
