I’ve never tried a gradient before, but I’ve always thought they looked super pretty. Today when it came time to choose my nail colours for the next couple of days, I knew I wanted to wear purple, but thought that I wanted something a bit more exciting than plain colour. So, I whipped out my sponge (19p for 5, thank you Tesco!) and had a go at a gradient!
I love A England, and plan to do a little post about my whole collection of them quite soon (just waiting for good sunlight to swatch all the holos!). For this look I’ve used Guinevere, a pretty pale purple, and Elaine, a very dark purple.
I know it’s not the neatest thing in the world, but I’m so proud of this. I thought it would be really complicated, and it only took about half an hour! I found the clean-up quite difficult; it’s hard to get close enough to clean the cuticles without wiping off the polish! I’ve also chipped a couple of the tips already, and I’m not quite sure how to touch it up… Still, I’m really chuffed!
