Gradiented Gradually

Sometimes you see a manicure so beautiful and interesting that you have to copy it immediately. This mani is dedicated to Nuthing But A Nail Thing, and her wonderful pink/yellow gradient. I literally took off what I was wearing at the time just to make my own version of this!

I honestly don’t know if I like my colors or original colors for this mani (even if it does include yellow) better. Either way, it is one cool style! It had never occurred to me to mix directions of gradients before.

  1. You are so clever with your manicures

  2. Im at “awww” over how you make it look so clean and easy!! I cant get straight polish lines for the life of me. What do you use to make the dots? The nail pen thingys? Yes, im very new to this!

    • hehehe awww! 😀
      For straight skinny lines like this, I use striping tape. The dots are actually made using an unbent hair pin dipped in white polish! I don’t own a pen thingie (or even a real dotting tool). It takes a bit of practice to get the dots even, but once you figure it out its pretty awesome!

  3. this is so pretty! I love the way the gradients change directions. Pretty!

  4. This is a gorgeous design and your nails look professionally painted!

  5. I love Nuthin’ But A Nail Thing’s gradients in general, that’s her area of expertise 😀 It’s the main reason I follow her!

  6. Awwww it looks lovely! Great job! And thank you for the share xxx
