NOTW: Summer Gradient

I wanted to try a more summery theme this week so went with a yellow/orange gradient. After trying gradients a few times, I’ve realised that I’m not very good at them, so I used my Nubar Polka Dot to draw attention away from how rubbish the actual gradient was! The colours I used were Mellow Yellow from 17 as the base, Showgirl by Ciaté for the middle bit and then Models Own Fluro Orange (which I picked up recently from Littlewoods) on the tips.Summer gradient nail art Summer gradient nail art


NOTW: Speckled Gradient

I loved how bright this design looked on my nails!  The gradient didn’t come out quite as obvious as I would have liked but I was still really pleased with how my nails turned out.  What do you think?


NOTW: Pink Gradient

I was quite pleased with this gradient but it didn’t really stand out enough against my skin tone.  I like my nails to be bright and obvious!


NOTW: Glitter Gradient

I really love this design!  I used Ciaté Angel Wings as the base and then Nails Inc Nail Jewellery to create the gradient.  I wish I’d managed to take photos in daylight as these photos could have looked so much better!



NOTW: Gradient Take 2

This gradient worked so much better than the one I tried last week!  I much prefer the colours and I managed to get the gradient a lot smoother.  This time I actually used three colours: No7 Stand Back as the base with Rimmel Green With Envy and No7 Dollar to make the gradient.  What do you think?I’m now off to try and decide how to do my nails for my friends wedding tomorrow (she’s been planning the big day for over a year now and it’s really exciting that it’s finally here!).  I had ordered Nubar 2010 to wear for the wedding but it hasn’t arrived in time which is really annoying!  If you have any suggestions please let me know – I’ll be wearing a navy bridesmaids dress with nude heels.


NOTW: Gradient First Attempt

I finally got around to trying to get a gradient on my nails.  I decided to use contrasting colours – Nubar Vogue Vert and Miners Plum) but I didn’t actually like the combination once they were on my nails!  It’s quite an easy technique (if you Google “gradient nails” then you’ll find lots of tutorials) although I think I need a bit more practice at getting the gradient smoother.  What do you think?  Have you had a go at gradient nails?
