Allo polish Pals!
How are you guys doing today? Today Mr Bravo and I are traveling back to Holland. The traveling part is never something I look forward to so I try to sleep through it! When I first arrived home in England my Mother had a real surprise for me...my mother is simply amazing in the way she always surprises me with new nail polishes whenever I visit – she is so kind and sweet to me and has always been so helpful and supportive of my blog. I was amazed to see Rimmel's and Essie's (Cute fact: my 4 yr old Niece Emilia helped her pick out the Essie's, girl's got taste!) Of course I couldn't wait to try them out and as it turned out, all of these colours looked absolutely beautiful together. ”Try all the polishes all at once!!!!” - That really is how my brain works.
For this manicure I began with two coats of Barry M's 'White' and once dry I began to sponge on a mixture of Essie's 'Splash Of Grenadine' and 'Tart Deco', I also used Rimmel's 'Bestival Blue', 'Love Bug' and 'Roll In The Grass'. I did not create this as a regular gradient, it was done with the 'Love Bug' the pale yellow shade in the center of the other four polishes. I added a border to all the nails using Oumaxi's white acrylic paint. Finally I smoothed it all out with Catrice's top coat.
Its not my usual type of gradient but I really like the colours together! Because of the way I've done it it is not completely blended out like a regular ombre/gradient but I kinda like that! It reminds me of a photography filter.
What do you think of my less conventional gradient? Do you like these colours together?
Smile tons and have a lovely day, I'll see you when I get to the other side!
