Hi loves! Today is a very special day - I am doing a twin post with my girl Angie! Please be sure to follow her, she has the loveliest nails (and if you also go follow her on Instagram, the cutest doggie too!). When she commented on this post about I♥NP Birefringence saying I should try a multichrome gradient because she tried one and it was epic, I immediately suggested to do a twin post. So here it is!
Now, let me start by saying that while this looks nice and all, you might wonder if I actually did a gradient. Yeah, I picked 2 shades that were so close together after sponging, the gradient is kinda invisible. I could spy it better in real life, but photographing purples always is a hard task and this didn't help!
I started with 2 coats of I♥NP Birefringence on my nails, except for my pinky (well I did but the stupid sponge got stuck in the gradient and I had to remove it and then just painted it with 2 coats of I♥NP Cygnus Loop..), and after it dried I used Cygnus Loop for the gradient. It took around 4 sponge sessions to let the gradient show up. Clean up was a total bish with all the sparkle everywhere! But it did smooth out beautifully with just 1 layer of topcoat :-).
I can't wait to see what Angie created, hopefully her multichrome gradient will shop up better! I now for sure I'll be trying this again in the future. Have you ever tried a multichrome gradient?
