Hi loves! How are you doing? Did anything fun this weekend? I worked my but off to have the blog all settled for my small leave today (I am already in Poland as this post goes live!).
Today I have for you a very bold gradient manicure going from white to black! I was inspired after seeing this gorgeous manicure from Kristin (Ermahgerd Perlish) to do a gradient like this. Unfortunately I do not own that cool glitter topper (but I might get it when the next paycheck comes in) but I still enjoyed this look without it :-).
My base is 2 coats of Hema 809. It applied okay, if you do 2 thicker coats it levels out nicely and opaque. After it dried I used a make up sponge and a england Camelot to create the gradient. I always follow this technique to create my gradient and with the black & white I got a nice bit of grey in between too!
Using one coat of topcoat to create a shiny finish, I really enjoyed this look. Gradients are a bit of work with clean up (I like to use q tips with a flat part, like these, to do the most of my clean up) but so worth the effort!
What do you think of this combo? Ever tried a bold gradient like this? Tell me in the comments!
