Simple Gradient

Good day lovelies! I slacked again, meant to post this yesterday but well yeah. Just... yeah. I did a lot if that counts... Well it shouldn't cause for as much as I did get to do yesterday I'm still so behind. To break it down, I have 8 collections to share with you guys sitting on my desk. Yay for lots of polishes! I'm determined to get them all done this week though. In between every thing, I want to get some nail art challenges completed too.

Here's my completed Day 4 Gradient challenge for the April Random Nail Art Challenge.

I adore gradients, don't you? You add a glitter topper and it takes it to a whole other level. It was one of the first things I learned how to do very early on. It's super simple and easy to do. If you guys want me to type up a tutorial sometime, let me know down in the comments.

For this gradient I used a base of white polish by Sinful Colors. It's really a good and cheap white polish. It works great when it's brand new so I tend to replace it often. Other polishes used for my gradient: Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Tan Lime, Sally Hansen Triple Shine Statemint and Play Koi. The glitter topper I used is by Maybelline Color Show called Clearly Spotted.

Tan Lime was added as a last minute decision and so it doesn't show as much on my ring and pinky finger. It's a great shade of green but it's extremely sheer so I wouldn't recommend it for a gradient.

If you can't tell in the photos, I'm actually trying to hide my thumb. I did this mani at like 5 a.m. on Sunday when I couldn't sleep so I confess I didn't paint my thumb in order to save time. Hope you guys don't mind that, haha.

I hope you all liked this short but sweet post. I usually write a lot but I'm starting to think short ones like this are good every once in a while too. I'll have another post up a bit later. Happy Monday :)
