Hey guys, today is the last day of the Falling Forward Nail Art Challenge. I must say that it was fun. I'm glad I participated in it. Thanks Kim!! I was forced out of my comfort zone and I really appreciate it!
Today's Challenge was Fall Gradient/Ombre. I've never done a gradient manicure before, but I've always thought about it. I didn't know how I was going to do it so I googled some tutorials and I finally decided to do things my way, as usual.
What I used:
Finger Paints Tiffany Imposter,
Zoya Frida and HK Girl topcoat
I painted my nails with two coats of Tiffany Imposter. I then topped it with HK Girl. I went about 3/4 down my nail with Frida and painted a jagged line with one thin coat. After, that dried I went down 1/2 my nail with Frida again and added another coat. For the last coat I went down my nail about 1/4 and painted again with Frida. I let this dry for a couple of minutes. Once dried, I added HK Girl topcoat.
I really like this manicure, but I wish I had taken my time and did a better job. I was in a time crunch when I did my manicure and didn't have time to painted carefully. But all in all, I really do love this manicure. I've also received several compliments.
Nails are a tad darker in person.
Next time I try this, I'll definitely carve out enough time to do it slowly and have time to clean up afterward. I had to go to my son's school and help the 1st graders tie-dye T-shirts! It was fun.
What do you think of this Gradient?
