Wet n' Wild On A Trip
Milani Fresh Teal
Seche Vite as a top coat
This was my first attempt at gradient nails, except they kind of came out looking more like tie dye. Haha! Clearly I need a little bit more practice, but I am excited to try again with lots of other colors. The Nailasaurus has a pretty awesome tutorial on how to do gradient nails, which is what I used. I think the biggest difference from the tutorial and what I did is that I used a cosmetics sponge so it was a lot less porous than a kitchen sponge and I didn't get the speckley look I was trying for.
Back when I posted my 10 favorite nail polishes and asked what everyone's favorites were I was recommended Milani Fresh Teal. (Thanks Kaili). I saw it at the drug store a few weeks back and had to grab it, the color on the bottle is gorgeous. BUT the bottle isn't clear so what you see isn't even close to what the polish actually looks like. That was a huge let down but I still really love the color that was inside the bottle. It's quickly shimmied it's way into my favorites. I've been using it quiet often! It goes on in nearly one coat and has a great consistency.
Hope you're having a fabulous Sunday!
