Gradient All The Nails
Hi guys! Today I’m excited and proud to be a part of my first link-up! I’m in a group called Paint All The Nails! on Facebook which is intended to increase engagement on the blogs that belong to the members; and let me just say, the caliber of nail bloggers in the group is superb. I feel so lucky to be included with such a coterie of talented people.
We are going to try and do link-ups each month, each with a different theme. I’m excited to not only be included in this little adventure but to be able to work on more nail art. Nail art tends to fall by the wayside here at Peachy Polish because the swatches seem to always reign supreme, but I’d like to incorporate different forms of nail beauty onto the blog! This just seemed like the perfect opportunity!
For my first ever link-up, I wanted to try and do something different but simple using the gradient theme. I decided to do a blue gradient using dots. I’ve been calling this a “dottifall” since the style is a kind of dotticure/waterfall hybrid. For this look, I used China Glaze “New Birth” as the base, then concentrated dots using Zoya “Ling” near the base of my nails. Then letting the dots get more sporadic as I moved towards the tips of my nails, I used OPI “No Room For The Blues” for the dots near the middle and OPI “What’s With The Cattitude?” for the dots toward the very tip. The dots toward the tip of the nail should be the most delicate and sparse. I quite liked how this turned out and thought the colors blended into each other perfectly! I really can’t wait to try this with other color combos now.
I wanted to add a little dimension to the mani and even contribute the the gradient theme some more, so I used Shleee Polish “Elsa” for the glitter gradient over the dottifall! I thought it really brought the look together!
I hope you enjoyed this post! Stay tuned in September for the next edition and a great new theme. I’m going to try and participate as often as possible. :) Please don’t forget to support my fellow bloggers who have such amazing talents and visit their posts below!Provided For Review I Bought This
