31 Day Challenge: Gradient

Hello lovelies!

We're halfway through the week and I get my car back from the shop today! I'm so excited :D

But, onto the nails!

 Birds, hearts, or "V's"? I don't know you tell me!

Here's what I used:

Just like my metallic nails, I was bit stuck for inspiration so I changed the colors of this pattern!.This was the first gradient that I've done in a really long time (these were done before yesterday's rainbow nails) but man, I forgot how messy these are! Polish everywhere, not cool.

These nails started with two coats of White On. When that had dried, I sponged on the gradient of Kristen and Anne. I think I added three layers of color because Anne isn't very opaque. But then using my acrylic paint and detail brush, I added on the pattern. Everything was sealed in with HK Girl.

I liked wearing these nails too, mostly because I was able to do both hands! The shapes might have looked a little bit more fat hearts on my right hand but, oh well haha. I do wish that I was able to be more consistent with the design but they looked great from far away!


Thanks for reading guys!

  5. I'm deciding to see them as Flying V birds. They're Vs with tiny little eyes and a beak that you can't see ;) And instead of going "caw caw" they say "vah vah!" and poop out little alphagetti Vs on your car windshield.
