Wedding Weekly: Theme/Color (Nail Challenge Week 4) My First Gradient Manicure!
Ready to see my first gradient manicure? Ok, here it is!
I used Icing's All that Glitters is Green, Zoya's Skylar, and Wet N Wild's Frosted Fuchsia
I was pretty happy with how it turned out and how easy it was to do! I just sponged Skylar over the tips with a makeup sponge wedge. My best tip would be to work quickly with this technique because I did get some bumps when the polish started to dry on the sponge. But, the top coat really smoothed most of it out :)
If you don't mind seeing my rough cuticles up close, you an click any of the images to enlarge :)
Here are the photos from my Wedding Day that I used for inspiration. My colors were mostly Blue and Green with a splash of Fuchsia. Haha, that always makes me think, "My colors are blush and bashful, Mama!" from Steel Magnolias. God, I love that movie :)
