I chose a dark navy blue, a medium royal blue and then and aqua. I am so happy with how this turned out!
I think the magnetic stripes in it definitely look wavy and therefore YES swimming poolish! Woot!
Here's a ring I wouldn't wear in the pool with this mani but it looks cool just the same! It's my new hinged "cage" ring
I wanted to be able to wear it on my index finger but it's too small despite being labeled a size 7 lol!
Before I tell you how I did this fab mani I want to give kudos to the gal who came up with the idea first!
Check out her mani http://www.flickr.com/photos/tiane/7268855980/in/photostream Thanks Tiane for such a great idea.
Now how did I do mine? It was actually very simple. I did a gradient using 3 of my blue Nabi's. The darkest blue is labeled Navy Blue, the medium blue has no label lol but it's a medium royal blue and the light one is labeled Sky Blue but to me it's an aqua. Here's a pic of the colors I used and how the sponge looked
I went darkest to lightest from cuticles to tips. I did a couple coats of gradient to give me a nice build up. Then one at a time I applied a clear topcoat--don't use a fast drying one--and as soon as the clear went on I used the magnet. GENIUS! The topcoat rewets your magnet polish making it available to magnetize!
Seriously how cool is this??? So cool it's definitely a swimming pool cool mani!!!!
Have you thought about trying a magnetic gradient?? I say GO FOR IT!
