10 of 31: Gradient Nails
Howdy! I'm a little late posting this, but oh well. I figure the manicure was worn the whole day of Day 10, so it counts, even if I'm posting it 10 minutes after midnight ;) Today is Gradient Nails and here's my version:
I started with 2 coats of Ulta's Magnetic polish in Put a Ring on It, a dusty rose polish with blue iridescent glitter. Then, I taped off my nails in the middle and did a gradient from tip to cuticle using China Glaze Magnetix in Instant Chemistry, a dark maroon. I reversed the gradient for the other half of the nail and then used a coat of non-fast drying top coat to reactivate the magnetic polish to create the diagonal lines. This didn't turn out as well as I'd hoped it would, but I'll give it an "A" for effort.
Next up is polka dots so check out tomorrow's post! Thanks for reading :)
