Twinsie Tuesday: Seasonal Gradient

9:00:00 AM

Good morning!  I feel like I haven't blogged in forever.  Kind of silly though seeing as it's only been about 4 days.  I kind of had a mini panic attack thinking I was going to run out of posts to share, so I backed off posting.  I think I have a decent amount saved up again so I'll probably try to get on a more regular posting schedule.  We shall see!

Today is Tuesday, meaning it's time for Twinsie Tuesday!  The prompt for today's post is "Seasonal Gradient".  Honestly, I had no idea what to do.  I was going to do blue, but I figured everyone would since that is kind of the go-to winter color in my opinion.

I decided to go with a purple gradient since Radiant Orchid is Pantone's color of the year!  Maybe it's not seasonal since it's a year long thing, but the color was just announced, so it works....right?

Let's take a look!

Colors Used
  • Base
    • OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
  • Gradient
    • Sinful Colors - Candy Coated
    • China Glaze - That's Shore Bright
    • Sinful Colors - Amethyst 
So sadly, the gradient doesn't show up in the photos as much as it did in real life, but you can still see that it's lighter at the top of the triangle and darker at the tips.  I started off with a base coat of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls and then let it dry for a good few hours.  Then, with my painters tape, I created the main triangle on my nails.  With my nail art tape, I went slightly below the painters tape and created another triangle.  Then, with my make up sponge, I sponged on my gradient and removed the tape!

It's a neat look, right?  I did something similar in the summer on one of my nails when I did some ugly green and yellow gradient I hated and everyone else seemed to like.  I would link it but I hate it so much that I refuse to go look at it again.  I'm happy with the look now that it is in a color I enjoy!  I kind of wish I put INM Northern Lights over the gradient before I removed the tape.  Knowing me though, I probably would have ruined the purple goodness and been all frustrated.  Maybe next time I will try.

What do you think?  Can you see the gradient?  Or is it an ombre?  I confuse those two pretty much 99% of the time.
