The bad news is this means they’re going to steal an hour from us some time soon but the good news is the sun is shining!
In honour of spring and all the new baby critters coming into the world I decided to do a quick pastel gradient today with my new W7 polishes (bought from nailpolishdirect.co.uk for £1.95 each with free postage). I used pink, blue and peach from the sheer collection. I also added a little Rimmel Pro Peppermint. Due to the pale nature of these colours I sponged over a layer of white to speed up opaqueness and also to make the colour “pop”.Now gradient designs are fairly quick to do but they are fairly messy to clean up (especially to a standard for macro photography). Some people protect their fingers by adding tape or vaseline, I just took my time with cotton buds and remover after I was finished – just the sort of maverick I am!
So which colour combo is your favourite?
I am looking forward to wearing this out today as I head to the shops for a brand new bottle of white polish (RIP old Natural Collection White). The great thing about gradients, especially pastel ones is that they look great with art over the top. Watch this space!
