Gradient with a england polishes


Now sometimes you have gradients that are obnoxious in contrast, with colors that are so far from each other in tone you can easily tell it's a gradient. This is not one of those gradients.

a england Lady of the Lake and Tristam are basically the same polish, only in 2 versions. Lady of the Lake being the purple one and Tristam blue. They have the same magical holographic particles and apply in the same way. Because these colors seemed to fit so well together I did a gradient. Turned out they are a bit too close to really notice the gradient!

I still liked the result and with sunshine holographic polishes are always a win so I enjoyed this manicure!



Do you like this? Did you experience this with a gradient, picking two colors too close?

  5. This is so subtle!
    Even if it's quite hard to notice from the pictures, just because as you said these two polishes are quite similar, I think it's a great idea to use close tones for a gradient. We're so used to do gradients with contrasting colours that I've never considered the idea of using close shades :D
    I love it!
    And then.....A-England are gorgeous! When I'm wearing St.George I can't help admiring my hands!

    This is beautiful!!  They ARE really close, but I can see the difference in the macro shot.  I haven't done many gradients, so I  haven't had this problem.
