Today I have a post that almost doesn't look like a gradient, but original idea for this nails was a gradient. I wanted to do a stripe fade à la Mr Candiipants, but using zigzags instead of straight lines.
Then I realised my design was more like a Missoni pattern:
I wouldn't advise a special base color for this type of mani. In fact I used a random light blue (from a Forever 21 set) for a first coat of opacity. Then using every time a zigzag pattern with my tiny art brush, I covered it completely with different colors (from the cuticules to the edge):
OPI - Dutch'Ya Just Love OPI?
Miss Cop - Vernis Pop Fluo n°6
Forever 21 - Unnamed light purple from a set
Sephora - Jacuzzi Bubbles
Essie - Navigate Her
OPI - Uh-Oh Roll Down the Window
E. Pinaud - Chocolat
I am really happy with this manicure, but it took quite a long time to do the left hand: I had not time left to do zig zags on my right hand, so I did a skittle mani with the first 5 colors ;)
Sadly because I was late my right hand nails have been damage so I don't if I'm gonna enjoy this mani a long time :/
Do you like it?
Happy polishing to you ;)
I just finished a tutorial for this design, this is my first youtube video!
