As you all know I am terrible at gradients but I thought I'd try it again in honor of the best holiday ever. Overall...it still came out terrible. As guess as a nail artist there are some techniques we are really good at, and some we just can't seem to master.
I really loved these too polishes. The orange is Color Club Sparkle and Soar which is a stunning orange polish with gold shimmer which really catches the light. I thought it would look great paired with Sally Hansen Insta-dri In a Flurry. In a Flurry is an amazing black polish with blue, purple, and green shimmer. I am seriously in love with it. I really need to just wear it on its own so I can show you the amazingness.
I have tried a number of gradient methods and none of them seem to work for me. I think My thumb came out decent, but it doesn't look too gradienty, more like a 50/50 mani. Yes, I did just say "gradienty."
Here is what I used:
Color Club in Sparkle and Soar
Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in In a Flurry
Overall I adore these colors on thier own, but I was pretty much a fail making them into a gradient. I guess I will try something different to show the beauty of these Halloween colors.
Do you think this gradient was a fail? Do you have any nail techniques that you just can't seem to master?
