Good morning! It's been a couple days since I've posted, but I was really enjoying my last mani and ended up wearing it for 3 days! (Yes, that's a long time for me!) Since I'm one of the few bloggers who actually posts what is currently on my nails, I had to take a short break from blogging while I enjoyed wearing my leopard-print nails.
Anywho, today I've got a half-moon gradient that I've seen floating around quite a bit. The main reason I tried this was because I have an audition on Sunday, but I have a social event to go to immediately afterwards and was looking for something that I could do in french manicure colours while being more interesting than a plain french tip. I gave it a trial run in these colours to see if I liked the look, and it turns out I LOVE it!
I began with a base of two coats of Orly Plum Noir, and a coat of Seche Vite to speed up the drying. I then used hole-reinforcers to block off the half-moon shape, and sponged on a gradient of Plum Noir and Nails Inc. Power Pink, followed by a second coat of gradient with Plum Noir and Revlon Raspberry Scone. Two coats of Seche Vite to smooth it all out.
As I've already made clear, I absolutely love this; I keep looking at my nails and thinking that I should be seeing them on a model in a magazine or something! I think that this is such a chic, modern and edgy look that would look great in so many different colour combinations, (dark red and gold for Christmas?), and it wasn't difficult at all! Needless to say, I'll definitely be repeating this design on Sunday in french mani colours, so keep an eye out for that post early next week!
What do you think of this look? Do you like my colour choices? Are there any specific colours that you think would work great for this? :)
