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.
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 ^_^
