Hi Everyone! Day 10 in the Crumpet Nail Tart's Challenge is geometric. I decided to revisit a gradient. I did this gradient awhile ago and absolutely loved it. I was sitting her the other day wondering why when I do a gradient I usually only use it once. I mean why? That's sort of ridiculous to not use a polish more than once so I happily hauled em all out and went to town.
I used this gradient a few months ago to do a "Mayan" theme. I really loved it, I think it's one of my coolest gradients.
The colors are WetnWild Sunny Side Up, OPI OPI On Collins Ave, Finger Paints Vintage Velvet and China Glaze Shower Together
I stamped over it with Cheeky XL A and DRK-A
Here's a funny store, my friend Silver of Silvernator.com thought the soccer ball image was cool. I'm thinking to myself "soccer ball???--what soccer ball??" Then it dawned on me and I said "you mean the beehive image?" LOL! We both laughed--one man's soccer is another man's beehive I guess!!
Here's another little tidbit. Many times people ask me how long it takes me to do my nails. I also answer not very long. Well with this one I decided to time it exactly.
It took me 20 minutes to gradient this on both hands. 7 minutes to stamp both hands and 5 minutes to clean up both hands
So less than an hour for this mani--probably less than it takes to get them done in a salon.
AND just to show you this is, in fact, a full two handed mani here's the right hand with it
I used different images for the right hand, and the colors look "off" in this side by side, but gradient is the same.
I guess I just don't ever get tired of gradienting!
What's up for the Tart's tomorrow?
Splatter--ug! I am not a good splatterer. I might need some help and inspiration for this one!
Be sure to see what everyone else did for their geometric mani!
