Gradiance Week | Centered in Stripes

Welcome to Day 3 of Gradiance Week!

Yesterday's design was the epitome of summer, so of course I had to use more fall-ish colors for today's design!

Today's design is inspired by a design of Sarah's (Chalkboard Nails) that I instantly fell in love with! I've had it bookmarked in my mind for a while now. The only difference between hers and mine is that I chose to do a gradient along with stripes, I also opted out of tape.

For this manicure I used China Glaze First Mate as the navy blue base. Using a sponge, I created the gradient of China Glaze Exotic Encounters and China Glaze Sea Spray. Taking my nail art brush I created stripes going across the entire nail with Zoya Evvie. The panels of black were created with a black polish and nail art brush. You could use tape for the last two steps but I chose not to.

This is by far my favorite gradient color combo, la la love!

Random Retro

Good morning!

Here's a random design I created a little while ago. It was supposed to be plaid but once I was done it looked like weird, confused lines. So then I added dots in an attempt to make it look a little neater.



For this manicure I used Essence Bloom-A-Loom (light purple) as my base. Then I started created lines in different sizes and directions using Sally Hansen Green With Envy (lime green) and Rimmel Peppermint (light mint). The dots were created with my dotting tool and Sally Hansen The Real Teal (teal).

I'm still not sure if I like it but I'm not gonna lie...it looks pretty cute in the first picture. (:
