today I have my Shimmery Gradient Nails to show you.
Back in the old days when I was painting my nails a lot with regular nail polish I loved to wear gradient nails, but I never before made this kind of gel manicure. This is my first attempt.
As a base colour I used IBD JGP Seashell Pink and EzFlow TruGel Magic & Mischief for the tips. Blue Gel Polish is applied with a makeup sponge instead of brush. It is an easy way to create a gradient. Over the blue part I applied very fine glitter to add some shimmer. On some of the nails I applied silver rose nail stickers.
I was very careful with the sponge application to not create too much mess around the cuticles. I was afraid that I will not cleanup properly before each curing and after that it is too late. I focused so much that in the end there was nearly no need for any cleanup at all. I didn’t mix the pink and the blue for a middle part of a gradient but I will definitely try to do it next time because it makes colour transition prettier.
Thank you for coming!
