It is safe to say this gradient did not work out as planned. I am so envious of bloggers who can make their gradients look so amazingly flawless. It could be because my color choices were not similar enough.. or just because I didn't blend them enough before using the sponge... Regardless, I need to practice :)
Either way, I'll show you what I came up with :P
I used American Apparel L'Esprit as my base.
I followed TheNailasaurus's tutorial using my base color, and
Sally Hansen Salon Manicure Good to Grape & Plum Luck (get it? No such plum luck lol)
When I realized I wasn't really happy with the end result I decided to try stamping over it. That didn't really fix it... Just of one those days I'm not happy with my nails :(
I stamped with Finger Paints Paper Mache and BM-209
I have a nicer manicure to show you on monday so stay tuned :)
