31DC2012: Day 10 - Gradient

First of all I want to thank you, I have over 40 followers on my blog now! :) I never even expected to have 10 followers, so it's cool to have 40 people who read my blog! :D Thanks so so much for following me!

As you'll see from the post title, today's 31 Day Challenge theme is gradient. I have been dying to try a gradient manicure for ages! But I didn't think I'd do a good job so I just didn't... until now! :) I showed you a rainbow gradient for yesterday's challenge theme and I have another one today!

For this mani I used the following polishes:
  • Revlon - Lily, a pretty pale lilac creme
  • OPI - Do You Lilac It, similar to Revlon - Lily, but dustier/darker
  • Rimmel - Pompous, a dark purple shimmer

I used many tips from tutorials I've seen for this look. MissJenFabulous (Polish and Pearls is her blog) on youtube has a good gradient tutorial (and many other awesome ones!) and also The Nailasaurus has another great one!
I don't like to wear purples that much but in a gradient I like it a lot more! :) I really like gradients and I'd love to do more of them! I'm really really happy with how it turned out!

I also took these photos before I filed my nails down, which is why they might look longer here than my previous post!

Hope you enjoyed this short, sweet post!

Gorgeous gradient! The colors and the technique were so perfect. I'm also envious of your gorgeous long nails.

Thanks Rebecca! But you don't need to be jealous because they are SUPER short now. :( You'll see them in my next post. haha.
