NOTD: Blue Gradient

Hey hey hey!
Tonight I thought I would try gradient again (I have done it before, and I found it such a pain, and I also found it very difficult), and it came out really good!
Thanks goes out to Rebecca of rebecca likes nails. If you haven't check out her blog, do it now! The gradient tutorial will deffinatly help anyone who isn't comfortable with it yet.
K, so here are my nails!!
I failed at stamping my thumb :(

Yayyyyy! :)
Products used and LOTS more pictures after the jump. I took a lot of pictures, I'm sorry. Hahaha.

Here's a close up of one of my fingers... neat huh?

  • China Glaze - Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Nicole by OPI - "Baby" Blue
  • Nicole by OPI - Respect The World
  • Nicole by OPI - It's Up To You
  • China Glaze - First Mate
  • Art Deco Black
  • Seche Vite

I love the way this came out, and I'm happy I tried it again. It's still really time consuming, but the outcome is so worth it. I think I'll be doing it more often!

What do you think? Do you like doing gradients?



  1. That looks so cool!! I love the color! :)

  2. awesome job :)
    and it will get less time consuming as you get more practice! it only takes me like 5 minutes per hand after the initial drying time.
