The One With the ILNP Gradient Manicure

9:00:00 AM

Good morning polished world! How are you all doing on this fine.....what day is it, Wednesday?  I swear my days just keep blending into each other.  Every single day I ask "what day is it?"  I'm not the only one though, so I don't feel so bad about it.

Today's manicure is a simple ILNP Gradient that looked better in my head.  After my New Year's manicure where I did a gradient with Versailles, all I wanted to do was another type of gradient using some of Barbara's holographic polishes on top of a black.  I couldn't get the color combination exactly right, but it doesn't look too shabby.

Let's take a look!

Colors Used:
  • ORLY - Liquid Vinyl
  • ILNP - Float On
  • ILNP - Tidal Wave

As expected, the polishes were amazing to use for a gradient.  My only, minor, tiny, little complaint is that the colors weren't as vibrant as I would have liked.  Don't get me wrong, they were pretty bright, but I think Tidal Wave blended too much into Float On.  I really should try this with say a pink and a purple.

Regardless, I felt like the manicure had a real mermaid vibe to it.  If I was really feeling artsy, I probably would have painted some scales on the accent nail, but it was midnight when I did this manicure, and well, I didn't have time for that.  Honestly shocked I did a gradient on all ten of my nails.

What do you think?  Like this gradient?  Think I should try other color combinations?

Until next time, <3.
