After my last Sponged Gradient - NOTD I got a thing for gradient
nails. So I just had to do one that would go with an outfit of mine.
The Catrice polish was a very close match to a bag I have and the
faded color of the sponged Orly was the same as a tunic of mine.
I'm not an OOTD kind of girl so I don't have pictures of that. Sorry!
I used 2 or 3 coats of Catrice - 240 Sold Out For Ever as the
base color and then sponged on Orly - Le Chateau on the tip of
the nails. I did the manicure matte with ELF - Matte Finisher.
After a couple of days I wanted to try out gradient stamping on
my gradient nails. I used Konad - Silver and Deep Jungle Pearl
and chose a dot image from the Drikk Image Plate - DRK-A.
To get the gradient I applied the Konad Silver on half of the image
and Deep Jungle Pearl on the other half. Then I swiped with the scraper
a few times so that the two colors blended at the middle of the image.
You have to be quick so it don't dry. Then you just stamp as normal.
I liked the gradient more without the stamping, even
though it was cute with the dots. What do you think?
