The sun is back! I took some quick pics of the mess I made of a gradation that Jen taught on her blog http://nevertoomuchglitter.wordpress.com
I used these colors and the top coat that is almost gone, which is good because the nail polish got on the top coat brush.
Dark - Icing Envy
Middle - OPI Greenwich Village
Light - Orly Green Apple
I put a stripe of each color, dark on the nail bed, middle, then light on the tip.
Then I took the top coat and kind of swirled and blended. I made it all very thick and it settled
down and flattened out.
It reminds me of that balloon blowing kit where they would give you a tube of liquid plastic and a tiny straw and you would mash a glob of the liquid onto the end of the straw and blow up an awesome marblized balloon that smelled really evil.
I suppose you could also use the exact same kit to huff in a back alley along with smoking your candy cigarettes.
I did the other hand light to dark and painted the whole nail, then half, then the top bit, like in Jen's tutorial.
And a ring, of course!
I like this! It's a fun effect, and I dig the texture - thick and wavy.
I dare you try it!
Now what shoes.....
