Happy MANICure Monday! Since I’ve become
obsessed interested in doing nail art the one thing I still can not master is doing gradient nail art. Ever. It always looks a hot mess and never what I’ve envisioned I want it to look like. So I gave it a try and after 3 attempts I got something that looked more like acid wash jeans than gradient! LOL
OMG, do you all remember acid wash jeans? I had a pair that zipped at the ankle from Guess and I loved them!!! I wish I could find a picture I know I took from my high school year book but my yearbook got lost. So if there are any Rough Riders from the class of 1991 (Washington, DC) please feel free to share if you find it! haha Since I couldn’t find my picture…this will have to do!
I used 3 colors to create this week’s look. Those colors are Sephora’s Havana Dreams, and NYC’s Skin TIght Denimn & French Tip White. The effect is starting to grow on me more but I’m still going to try to perfect this darn gradient.
So how did I do on the gradient? Lawd knows I still a bunch of help and one day in the future I may actually perfect this technique…but today is not the day! LOL
What’s your favorite type of nail art? For me my favorite still involves anything that I can create with my dotting tools. I’m telling you I can do some hella awesome art out of some polka dots!

cute!!! I was going to ask you to do twinsies with me. Let’s plan for next week!

Very cool! I sympathize with your technical problems as it took me a while to get the hang of it, too. Everyone has their own little tweaks, so hopefully you find one that works for you soon!
I think they look great, though. 🙂
Thanks Jennie! I LOVED your kiwi nail art!!! I’ll keep trying to give it the “ol college try” and hopefully it will turn out like how I want it too.

Thank you!!! Now I’m obsessing over trying to find that picture of me with those jeans…hahaha!
Haha, I LOVE them!! The gradient effect looks perfect!
Thank you so much!!! It’s starting to grow on me now. lol

NICE!!! Love the color combo
Thanks! Too bad they chipped after 2 days. ha!
Those are soooo rad!
Thanks Janie!!! Like totally rad, huh…LOL!
Oh wow, I think I might have to try this one. I love the acid-wash look on jeans and nails 😉 I just have this very unsteady hand so my left hand is always flawless, and my right hand (because I’m right-handed) is always a mess lol. Very cute!
