Hi polish friends! I want to share this post because it's one of my attempts at a gradient, which I am still working on perfecting. I really like how this one turned out! It's holo, it's neon, it's glitter. It's all kinds of good. Sadly I don't like how most of the pictures turned out and only 2 seemed good enough to share. So here are the pictures of the mani I wore to a Summer fashion show recently. I wore a bright yellow lacy top so I wanted coordinating and matching colors. This was perfect!
The main issue I am having with gradients is the mess it makes and clean up is a major pain. I think I will try taping my fingers next time and see if that helps keep it a little cleaner. I basically put the 2 Jade holos on a triangle makeup sponge, Energy (a teal blue) on top, and Deja Vu (a true hot pink) on the bottom. I then put the sponge on my nails and rubbed it up and down a bit to blend the colors together. I did that 3 times. To match my blouse I used Elevation Polish Huangshan as a final addition. I used 2 coats. I truly love this neon yellow glitter! So unique and fun! And what took me a while to notice was the color shifting iridescent micro glitters! Hello beautiful! 1 layer of topcoat to finish this mani.
