We're having sweater weather here! Brrr.... To go along with my winter sweaters, I created this Fall plaid nail design. My gradients still aren't perfect...argh...but here's what I used for this one.
This is a base of Sally Hansen Insta Dri Petal Pusher. I made a gradient with that lovely and strange caramel, L'Oreal The Perfect Trench. This is stamped with plate QA24 (from eBay), a unique, plaid french manicure design that I've been dying to try. I used Revlon Top Speed in Espresso to stamp over the gradient.
So...here's my gradient problem (or at least one of them!) - I can't find a good sponge! I bought the Konad sponging set - which was really expensive to get a few foam sponges. The sponges worked like a champ, though. I find I do better when I use eye shadow applicators, maybe because of the small area. I just haven't had a chance to make it back to Sally's to resupply.
Also, I figured I should be able to do this really cheaply, so I'm currently using pieces from a replacement mop head (!). It works, I just can't quite get the color on where I want it.
Any suggestions, polish lovers?
