Girly Triple Gradient

I don’t have a ton to say about this one.  First I started with three coats of Essie’s Lilacism, a streaky lavender that didn’t self-level the way I hoped it would.  I then used a cosmetic sponge to dab on two shades of Wet N Wild Megalast: On a Trip and Through the Grapevine.  I topped it all with NYC’s Matte me Crazy matte top coat.  My cuticles are dry and you can see the big break in my pointer finger nail that took off the whole corner.  Living with a slanty shape until it grows out enough to file back down to square.

This was fine, although I did feel it looked a little like crayon scribble.  I decided it needed something else so I stamped it with a filigree pattern from the DRK-A stamping plate and Konad‘s special gold stamping polish.  Lastly I topped it off with Out the Door quick dry top coat to put a shine on it.

Gradient Stamped Dim
