Hi guys, I'm back with Day 22 of the #33DC and the prompt for today is: 3 colour gradient + pattern. This is actually my second mani for this prompt. My original idea ended up being way too summery : D I don't mind though, in fact I'm actually quite pleased, I love the way these 3 colours work together so I guess all is well that ends well.
I started with a base of Revlon - Cupid that I got last week (can you tell I love this colour yet), and then sponged on my gradient with Rimmel Lycra Pro - Ultra Violet and Headline Colors Poolside Party. I've wanted to pair lilac and aqua together in a mani since I saw the colours next to each other in my kitchen. My washing powder was a lilac box, and my softener was a soft aqua colour : D
When the gradient was dry, I stamped the image from Cheeky plate CH52 with Barry M Silver Foil. I really love these colours together, and it always helps that all 3 of them have great formula's that are opaque in no more than 2 coats. I always find gradients harder if there's a big difference in pigmentation between colours..
I apologise about the slightly sorry state of my cuticles in these pictures. I gave them some TLC over the weekend though, and they're looking nicer now : ) Don't forget to check out all the other ladies participating in the challenge. I'm sure their hands are looking a lot nicer too!
