Heeey yous guys. Today's challenge was Watercolor or Sponging. I chose sponging....the "easier" option, which I totally failed at. This is one mani that I was not upset to take off as soon as I took pictures...
For this I tried to do a gradient to make a sunset over water... it looked a lot better on the nail wheel I tested it on first. I think my mistake was trying to use too many colors and my nails aren't long enough for that. So I ended up getting orange where I wanted blue and having to go back over it with blue... then the blue wasn't the right color. Get my drift?
For this I used a base coat of Zoya Farah, 1 coat. Then I made a gradient with Orly Plum Noir, China Glaze Roguish Red, a little OPI A Roll in the Hague, and China Glaze First Mate. Then I stamped using an image from BM 315. Not only was I disappointed in the gradient, my stamping clearly needs some work. Check out the bird on my ring finger - he is flying straight up and down!! My stamping polish is Milani Black Swift.
I'm working on tomorrows theme right now (letting layers dry while I type this...) - so hopefully they will be much better than today's atrocious disaster!! Tomorrow is, obviously, Valentin'es Day or French Tips!! Should be lots of prettiness going on.
Take a few minutes and look at the other girls designs!
