Yellow gradient

I love doing gradients, but this one didn’t came out the way I was planning it to do. I even took it of after taking the pictures! This was a difficult one to do. I started with one coat of ELF – Dessert Haze and then one coat of China Glaze – Yellow Polka Dot Bikini and then I used China Glaze – Concrete Catwalk as a contrast color. What I didn’t like about it was that the yellow seemed dirty because of the Concrete Catwalk. Oh, well, I’ll try with other colors soon, maybe the next combination will come out better!

    I’ll admit, these may not be shades I would wear, but you did a fantastic job on the technique.

    I agree with Tara, you have fantastic technique! It’s almost like the gray turned a little green. The yellow is great!

    I actually like the finished look! It’s different!

    Tara @ Polishy of Truth: Thank you :) I guess the contrast was too big maybe…

    Meredith: Thank you :) The yellow is very sheer. I think it isn’t even covering in four och five coats on it’s own. That’s why I used some underwear. Now I think it should have been a white one.

    Amanda: Thank you so much :)

    NailsLikeLace: Thank you, I’m glad you liked this :)

    Jag gillade den här skarpt!

    Jag tycker i och för sig att det ser läckert ut! Den ser “naturig” ut. :-)

    I know what you mean about it looking dirty, but I really like it. It’s like a funky look!

    But it looks great! I love the dirty look :)

    Helena: Tack så mycket :) Men det såg bättre ut i mina tankar innan jag gjorde gradienten :D

    Nailtastic: Tackar! Jag kan förstå vad du menar med “naturig” dock :D

    MariJo: It kind of looked so much better in my imagination before I started to do the gradient :D

    Mona: Thank you so much :D

    I think it turned out pretty nice-looking! :) I’d love to see it done with other colors too!

      Me too :) I’ll do some more with other colors :)

    Det ser jättehäftigt ut!

    Lätt en av de bästa gradientsen jag sett! Både teknik- och färgmässigt.

    Läckert! Originellt och snyggt!

    Sminkan: Vad roligt att du gillar den!
