This manicure was all together too much fun, and was inspired by my little sister! If you remember, two weeks ago I made a special Sunday post for her, to honor nails I did for her return to college. I loved the gradient that I used as the background so much that I copied it on myself! I did NOT go ahead and make college references on my own nails though, I just added some stylized black awesomeness, inspired by @kbkopija.
Despite having done a gradient for quite a few of the 31 day challenge nails so far (there is another one coming on the 13th too) this was the only official “gradient” day. Oops! Anyway, whee colors!
~ Yellow: Love&Beauty – Yellow
~ Orange: Zoya – Thandie
~ Pink: Essie – The Girls Are Out
~ Purple: Sinful Colors – Dream On
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
The design was made with quite a few pieces of striping tape (my other love…stay tuned for days 12 and 16) and some little black rhinestones. What I do not understand is why my stash of black and silver rhinestones is so much depleted compared to my other colors. Ugh! Black, really? Apparently I have emo 3D nail love. Go figure!
Anyway, I hope you enjoyed these freakishly bright gradients! What I have lined up for tomorrow might be one of my favorites in a long while (hint…its’d dotty day!).
