I did a rainbow gradient. I love gradients too, but I’m never really satisfied with them. I’ll get back to that later.
Here’s my “You”-mani:
I used five different polishes from El Corazón’s Matte Effect collection. Four of them are neons. The topper is from LynBDesigns and is called Iocaine Powder.
I especially like the middle finger with the orange and pink, I think those two look amazing together.
Here are the polishes:
|El Corazon: 145-neon, 141-neon, 143-neon, 144-neon, m&s160, LynBDesigns: Iocaine Powder|
The reason I’m never really satisfied with my gradients is because of the clean up. I use liquid latex around the cuticles, but the polish still manages to get right in there. I dip a small brush in acetone and try to remove the polish, but no matter how many times I do it, the polish stays there. It looks really easy when the girls do it on Youtube, but I haven’t gotten it right just yet. My theory is that their cuticles are less dry than mine, and thus the polish lets go easier, but that’s just a theory. I use tons of hand cream, cuticle moisturisers and oil, but it doesn’t seem to make any difference. *pouts*
Anyway, let me finish this post by showing you something funny. The acetone has now eaten up the bristles on my brush! :D
You should definitely check out what the other girls did this week too! I can’t wait myself!
