Gradient with OPI Gouda Gouda Two Shoes & Dutch'ya Just Love OPI?


Yes I love gradients too. They are everywhere and I freaking love them! When I didn't know what to polish this sunday, I thought I'd like to show you OPI Gouda Gouda Two Shoes. I wore it before but the pictures of it sucked so I didn't show it to you guys yet.

But, when I noticed my bottle of OPI Dutch'ya Just Love OPI? next to it, I figured these looked quite pretty together. Especially since they have that gorgeous shimmer in both of them. So I combined them. Epic win! At least in my book. I hope you like it as much as I do!

I used the tutorial by The Nailasaurus again for this one, just as I did with my previous gradient. I needed 2/3 rounds of sponging to get the purple nicely covered. Sometimes you have a gorgeous smooth gradient but the tips just don't seem opaque enough, just dip your sponge only into a bit of your tip color and do the whole gradient again, but just your tips! Way easier :).

  8. Really beautiful. Would never have thought of that combination. What is it with gradients at the moment. I see them everywhere. Not that that's a bad thing - they're lovely. I just don't recall seeing them before recently and now I keep seeing them:)

  19. Thank you Ivana, I do too! Especially since the shimmer in GGTS can be less visible when you normally wear it!

  30. I'm head over heels for this combo but since O.P.I. polishes are soooooo expensive I will find some cheaper polishes and try  to recreate this beauty 
    I also wouldn't mind if you show us more gradient stunners

  31. Aww thanks! And I hope you can find something to recreate :).
