Nails | Gradient Love + Current nailart

Monday, February 25, 2013

Hi guys, I hope you're all doing good! 
Some of you might have noticed (through my instagram especially) that I kind of love the gradient trend on nails! I can pretty much do it forever and not get bored because there is such a big range of colors I can use, and also I can draw on it if it's too plain... In a nutshell, I love gradient too much!
I've put some below so that you could see what I've done before

Coucou, j'espere que vous allez bien!
Quelques unes d'entre vous ont du remarquer (surtout son mon instagram) que j'adore la tendance degrade sur les ongles ! Je peux faire ca a vie franchement et ne pas etre soulee vu qu'il ya tellement de couleurs que je peux utiliser et de motifs que je peux ajouter si c'est trop simple... En gros, j'adore la tendance degrade!
J'ai mis quelques unes pour que vous ayez un apercu 

At first I was kind of playing it safe, combining colors that seemed to match, but then I started being crazier with my color combo, and now I pretty much try to combine colors that you wouldn't think would look good together!

Au debut je faisais plutot simple, je combinais que des couleurs qui me semblaient logiquement aller ensemble, maintenant c'est vraiment l'oppose! J'essaie de combiner des couleurs qu'on ne penserait pas vraiment combiner!

My current nails is a good example of weird color combo that actually looks nice (at least in my opinion :P)
I had some people asking me to put tutorials, I really s*ck at doing those but I tried! Tell me if it helped!

I used
Essence Colour & Go - Lime Up!
O.P.I (Pirate of the Caribbean collection) - Planks A Lot
P2 Color Victim - Can't Get Enough  
Stripe Brush 
Top Coat
A Make Up Sponge

1. Paint your nails with your base color (I use the green) 
2. Paint a make up sponge with the colors you'd like (I've seen people put only colors one at a time, I like to add them all, base color included) so they can blend better. 
3. Stamp the sponge on your nails in a dapping motion, and let it dry, then repeat step 2 & 3 (I did it twice) 
4. You can start doing lines the way you want 
5. More lines
6. More lines and dots, then finish off with a top coat

And Voila!!!! Here is the finished result! Hope you like it! :)
