31 Day Nail Art Challenge: Day 10 - Gradient

This is my first ever gradient! I love Painting Outside the Lines challenge because it is making me do all new things!!


If you will remember on Day 4 (green)... I said I have a lot of greens... And I do. So, what better color to use for my gradient than my most abundant!


I will admit that I got a little heavy on my pinky... oh well!! Here are the colors I used:

Zoya Tracie (lightest: base)
Zoya Gemma (Medium)
Avon Nailwear Olive Green (Dark)
Julep Sophie (sheer overlay)

I sponged on Gemma, then the Olive Green... then, just because I love sparkles, I added some Sophie!


You can really see the sparkles in the shade ;)

I'm super excited to see everyone's gradients today! Head over to Painting Outside the Lines and check them out!

  1. Green is what I have the least of, so normally I'm not all Yay Green! But I really like this gradient! So pretty. Yay green! ;)

    1. I have a sick love for green nail polish... I don't know why exactly, it certainly isn't my fav color (maybe it's because it's my last name?? LMAO)

      Thank you!

    1. Thank you!! Now I don't feel so bad about it... I wasn't really happy with it when it was all said and done... Maybe it's because I was so sad to take the rainbow off!! Hahaha
