Gradientus Vulgaris

Simple and elegant gradient, no stamping. I guess from time to time i am getting tired of design and just want somehting simple and stylish. The best trick is use a glitter top coat,it will help to smoother the boundaries between colors, and kind of polish you gradient.
And also just want to welcome all new guests and reader, i notice that a lot of new people where joining the site recently. So welcome and stay tuned for more nail designs, and possibly comming up contest sometime in September.

  3. Oh, wow. I have Mint Mojito, I haven't used it yet. You make it look awesome! I tried to do this last night with a red color as the base and a sparkely pink as the top and it did not come out looking good at all.
    I need to practice, practice, practice, practice, etc.!

  5. I used Yves Rocher nail polishes. A jelly red for the first layer and a sparkley sheer pink as the 2nd layer and it was just a mess. I have been trying gradients ever since I saw that post that gradation post, along with others that I have seen from other bloggers. Some say to use Orly smudge fixer or a water-based basecoat as a gradient liquid. I just can't do it! I did do one that turned out OK, but it was very messy and a lot of work. Here's that post. Let me know what you think about how it looks and my process.

  6. This is very pretty. You do the gradients manicures really well. It's very delicate looking like the inside of a seashell.
