Thank you to Sammy a Nailasaurus for the awesome gradient picture tutorial! With her help, my gradient has gotten much, much better!
I also just received my the new Bundle Monster set in the mail - what a great day! I decided to combine a new effort at gradient nails with my new Bundle Monster plates to come up with a "flowers" manicure for this day of the challenge.
I started with a base of Kleancolor Pastel Teal. I should have tried my gradient with only two colors, but I didn't feel like the green was dark enough, so I made a gradient with Sally Hansen Insta Dri Lickety Split Lime and a tiny bit of Kleancolor Grass Green. It made the gradient a little splotchy - especially since I'm still working on this technique - but it did darken up the green a bit.
I stamped with Konad Special Polish in white using a plate from the newest Bundle Monster set - BM314. They've got some interesting designs that I can't wait to play around with! At their website, you can see closeups of the new set.
To add a little contrast, I dotted the flower centers using Kleancolor Metallic Green and Metallic Aqua.
I hope you're having a great weekend, Konaddicts! Thanks for stopping by; see you next time for "tribal" nails...
