31 Day Challenge, day 10: Gradient


Hi everybody! :-) It's about time that I continue with the 31 Day Challenge, so here you have my attempt on day 10: gradient nails. And what a terrible attempt it is... I tried so hard and so many times to get the gradient smooth, but so far this was the best I could do. I do like the colors though, and from a distance it doesn't look too awful. So with a lot more practice, I hope to show you a better gradient next time. ;-) I used P2 Funky as my basecolor and used a fine make-up sponge to dab on Essence Sending You Kisses on the tips.
My next post will be featuring polka dots, hope to see you again then!

  3. Actually what I really like about this gradient is that it's not perfectly smooth and blended! It looks kind of punk rock/street art-esque to me and I think the colors look really great together too.

  4. I had a lot of trouble to start with too. i found a piece of washing up sponge worked better than cosmetic sponge, esp when kept moist. That made a BIG difference! Good luck :) xx

    1. Same here! Makeup sponges are too dense I think. :) x

  6. Omg, this is so cute! I love the color choice :) I actually just did gradient nails the other day too! I did blue and green. Yours actually looks so good! Mine don't have nearly as smooth of a transition, haha. But, you did great! :)

  7. I have the same issue with my gradients - they never come out smooth and seamless. Your is very pretty though. Mine on the other hand do not see the light of day and the pics are promptly destroyed- ha!

  10. Oh, it wasn't terrible at all in my eyes! :D Gradients are hard especially with colors that isn't close to each other. :)

  11. Hey, don't be so hard on yourself, I think it looks fun and funky! Gradients of two vastly different colours can be tricky. This looks very 80's fab. I like!

    If you put the two colours together and then dab that with the sponge, you'll have a smoother gradient :)

  15. I really like this. It looks like your nails are in the process of changing colors.

  17. I like this look. It doesn't look like a terrible gradient at all; it looks like a different style of gradient to me. It gives me the feeling of a southwestern U.S. sunset.

  18. Whoa, I actually think this looks really cool! Kind of like diluted paints streaked together! The fact that it's not a smooth transitioning gradient is irrelevant :D!

  19. why if I try it, it's horrible?
    and if you try it, it's great?
    :( *sad*

  20. I love it - like a few others have said I like the fact it's not completely blended. Also love the colour combo

    ReplyDelete
  21. I agree with everyone here, its far from terrible. It has a really unique feel. The colour combination really reminds me of something but I just can't think what! Where the colours meet it sort of reminds me of sound waves :D

  22. You are so wrong! ;) I LOVE that it's slightly rougher - I assumed it was intentional came here (from Tumblr) to find out how you got it like that! The colours are fab and I think they look great. x

    ReplyDelete
  23. ohh they're so cool! I'm doing it right now so new post will be tomorrow ;)

    ReplyDelete
  24. These aren't terrible AT ALL--I seriously love these! Not being all perfectly smooth, especially with the colours you picked, it looks like a fabulous batik or tye-dye! ^_^

  25. I love this gradient! I thought it was intentional, too. :)
    I adore the pixelated effect of the gradient, adds an interesting the twist to the whole ombre trend.
