Nail Art Marathon - 8.Gradient

Hey there!

This week's post is a little late because I had some issues with my nails and other things, plus a very busy end of the week, but I managed to take some [bad] pictures of my manicure this evening.

The theme is one of my favorites - gradient - and was Madalina's idea. I use a lot of gradients as a background for my manicures but this time I tried to make it stand out a bit.
I made a yellow-green gradient using Rimmel London 60 seconds 816 - Green eyed monster and Rimmel London Rita Ora 450 - Daisy Days. I think that using same brand ow nails polishes helps create the gradient effect better on the nails, but it was my first time experimenting this with same brand nail polishes.

After the gradient dried up, I used a nail polish I haven't used in more than two years - Avon Mosaic effects, black. I've seen crackle polishes used over gradients many times (last time on Andra Kat's nails - here) and I've wanted to try the technique really bad so I decided that this was the best moment. :D
Unlike in other manicures I've seen, I only used the crackle nail polish as a line on each nail, showing more of the gradient underneath, this way. 
The effect looks a lot better in real life than in these pictures...

The pictures I took in natural light don't show the colors as nice as they are on my nails. :(
However, you can see how the design is and, maybe, try it on your own nails. :D


Bad quality picture that reflects the colors better - artificial light:


It is now time to check out what the other girls did ^_^

Imi place mult alegerea culorilor la gradient si a fost o idee foarte buna sa aplici doar o dunga de crackle! Atrage atentia!
