It’s that time again where myself and my fellow Paint All The Nails group members link-up and create nail art around a theme. Last time we did Floral nails and this time we are tackling gradients (as you may have guessed from the title!). As participating in the link-ups is completely voluntary in our group you might see some new faces this time around. Yay!
It took me quite a while to come up with an idea for the gradient theme as it’s just so open. It didn’t instantly inspire me like the floral theme did. Eventually I decided to do gradient stamping as that’s one of my favourite techniques to do. I genuinely suck at sponge gradients so this technique is a lifesaver!
I started with Cirque Colors Carpe Diem as my base and stamped over it with Mundo De Unas Papyrus, Spring Green, Pastel Blue and Lilac (in that order) using image plate BPL-010 from Born Pretty Store. I added some bling with 3mm gold round studs and 2mm gold round studs, also from Born Pretty Store. Finished with Super Chic Lacquer Marvel top coat.
I wasn’t completely sold on my first look, so I decided to redo it with a black base and a different image from the same plate. I was so indecisive I just couldn’t decide which to post so I’m showing you both. I’ll leave it to you to pick a favourite out of the two manis! Let me know!
Please make sure to check out what my fellow group members have created! I can’t wait to see!! So much talent! 🙂
