Multicoloured Gradient Nail Art
These aren’t my best gradients but in my defence I was going to do something over the top so they didn’t need to be too perfect. However, I ran out of time and patience with them and decided they would be fine as they were! #nailbloggerproblems
These were done with Barry M pastel nail varnishes and are topped with two coats of Essie ‘Good To Go’ (Still not liking it as much as Seche Vite by the way…)
I’ve done a tutorial here for how to do gradients, this is the same principle but with 4 colours instead of 2.
I might actually update these tomorrow and post some pictures as I’m still not too enamoured with them…
Gold Gradient Nail Art
I missed Nail Art Sunday as I was absolutely shattered: I’ve been away at Creamfields (a music festival in the north of England) working so didn’t really get a weekend. But here we are, a day late!
I decided to do a gradient for this week’s nail art as I think gradients are a fairly simple way to make your nails stand out. I used a white base coat by Natural Collection. I find it hard to find a good white nail varnish but this one is pretty opaque and dries really quickly so it’s my go to white at the moment. I then sponged a glittery gold onto my tips: I used Collection ‘Shimmy Shake’.
I went against tradition and used Essie’s ‘Good To Go’ topcoat as my Seche Vite has run out. Now I remember why I never use it! It’s nowhere near as shiny, was really runny and didn’t dry quickly at all. Half an hour after I’d finished my nails I was still able to dent the polish with my nail: not good! I have already re-ordered Seche Vite so I don’t have to be without it. I will never forsake you again!
I had such an overwhelming response to my recent gradients blogs posts and I had a lot of questions asking how I do them, so I decided to do a little tutorial for you.
Seventeen Pastel Gradient Nail Art
These were done using Seventeen Lasting Fix polishes in ‘Woo Me’ (lilac) and ‘Fairy Cake’ (baby pink). I love doing gradients, they are so fun. You can treat yourself to some Seventeen nail polishes HERE.
Plus, I am LOVING my new shape. My nails are making me so happy at the moment (I am sad, I know. Don’t mock me).
I did a tutorial for a gradient nail art manicure, which you can find HERE.
A quick explanation. I did the manicure at the bottom of this post first but didn’t like how it came out (need more sponging practice I think!) so did another raimbow themed mani. I attached both as it’s all experience, right?
