Green Day 3: Gradient

Hello my lovelies! It's very late as I'm writing this so I hope I won't be too incoherent. We went to see "Oz the Great and Powerful" tonight and I liked it but wasn't too impressed. Did anyone else see it? Anyway, today's green post comes from the nail art department. I've been practicing my gradients again and this time I used greens. Here's how it came out. 


The base color for this gradient is Essie Navigate Her. I love this green so much and I had to include it in a spring manicure this year too. I find the shade very unique and the formula is also great. 


The second green I used is Rimmel Limealicious and I think the two go well together. To finish it off, I used one coat of INM Northern Lights. Glitter makes everything better, especially this one because it's holographic. Check it out in the sun. 


This gradient was kind of confusing. In some lights there was barely any contrast between the two, while in others there was a pretty clear delimitation line. I'm still working on the gradual fading part. But I'm pretty pleased with how this mani looked. 


I hope you enjoyed this manicure. Tomorrow is Saint Patrick's Day, so it will be the grand finale of my green series. It's gonna be spectacular so don't forget to check back tomorrow!

  7. I like this look on you but I don't think it would look half as good on me... I liked how Theodora turned out in the end of the movie! I also wish they made a remake of original Oz although I doubt it will happen :((

  8. Multumesc! Da, cu burete de machiaj l-am facut. L-am umezit un pic dar l-am stors bine dupa si nu prea absoarbe multa apa oricum. Eu am ceva ieftin de la un magazin chinezesc pt ca de obicei sunt cam scumpe. A si dupa am aplicat Seche Vite. N-am patit niciodata sa imi apara bule.
