One nail art request that I got quite often is gradient nail art. Gradient nail is a favorite nail art of mine but it's not a favorite "to-do" nail art as it's messy...messy and sometimes...just plain MESSY! :) Since I'm still in the mood for the upcoming Valentine's Day. I will continue my V-Day inspired nails. If you're sick of Pinks and Reds, I am so sorry! That's life, that's a good romantic combination for me! :)
Here's my final Romantic V-Day Nails
Apply your favorite base coat to protect your nails, let dry. Apply 2 coats of your favorite base. I am using Vision's Nail Polish (made by Oriflame) in Skydive.
Step 2:Using Elianto's Shimmer Burgundy polish, apply a thick yet thin "French Tip" (at a random, don't make it perfect at all!)
Step 3:Use any brand of Nail Hardener or Nail Base, anything that is clear and liquid-y in texture, brush the Burgundy Shimmer polish downwards to spread the color making a "gradient" effect. Again, I have to remind everyone, does NOT have to be perfect.
Step 4:Using any way you want to create dots, in my case, I've used a Prettynails' 2 way nail art pen in white, create flowers at a random per nail.
Step 5:Since I've been doing a lot of flower nail art, I want to vamp it up a bit by adding a second color on the flower, I've brushed gently yellow shade on top of the white petals.
Step 6:Add rhinestones if you have one or just skip this step altogether if you don't own any rhinestones or swarovski flat bed crystals.
Step 7:Making sure the nail art design is dry. Brush glittery polish thinly on top of the nail art. Again, this is an optional step. As you all know, I am a fan of glittery polishes.
Step 8:Protect your hard work by brushing OPI's RapiDry Top Coat
Now these nails are ready to go out on a date!
I actually enjoyed the outcome of this week's nail art design. I hope you enjoyed the steps that I've done for you nail art addicts out there! Again, thanks for always embracing my nail art designs!
Stay happy! :)
