Obviously, I have been in the mood for flowers! I’ve been painting and stamping them like they are going out of style. I realized that I hadn’t done a gradient in a while, so I set out to do one this time. Aside from the cleanup, this was super fast nail art – I really need to invest in some liquid latex, it would save me a ton of time.
As with all of my gradients, I started off by putting one coat of my lightest color – in this case, Color Club – Endless. I gave it a few minutes to set up and then using a non-latex makeup sponge, I applied my colors (Endless, ORLY – Cotton Candy and OPI – Love.Angel.Music.Baby) to the sponge and dabbed them over each nail. For this opacity, it took 3 passes.
I applied a single coat of Seche Vite and allowed it to dry completely and then stamped on my floral pattern using Funky Fingers – Gesso and Bundle Monster plate BM-XL05.
- Essie – Grow Stronger Base Coat
- Color Club – Endless
- ORLY – Cotton Candy
- OPI – Love.Angel.Music.Baby
- Seche Vite – Dry Fast Top Coat
I didn’t love this mani as much as I thought I would. The bit of metallic shine from LAMB was nice, but I ended up wishing I had gone with silver instead. Maybe next time!
