Bad Kitty Gradient
For today I have an interesting purple mani for you. This will be a short post but with lots of pics. I have been wanting to practice gradient manicures for a while so today is day one. I haven't quite gotten the hang of the sponge technique but I just used the brush to get the polish on the nail and then sponged the line to blur it. When I used the sponge the color just wasn't bright enough for me. The first layer is Elixir Lacquer Bad Kitty. I used three coats to get the color I wanted. Then it was one layer of OPI Ink and Save me. The top coat was Seche Vite because that glitter was pretty rough. One layer of SV and then the nails are like glass. Get ready for some picture spam. I think this turned out pretty nice for my first attempt. I'll keep trying to get better!
