So after "many" trials and errors, I finally accomplished my first successful nail gradient and I'm stocked! lol.
For this particular nail look I used two coats of Orly Harmonious Mess as the base color. And then I sponged Essie Play Date and Orly Harmonious Mess together to create the gradient. As my last step, I applied a layer of Out The Door top coat to seal the color and smooth the transitioning colors.
It may not look perfect but that's the best one I've been able to do so far. Perhaps, with more practicing, I might just be able to perfect it.
Do you have any tips on how to get the perfect gradient?
Lastly, Harmonious Mess is a new polish that I picked up from Sally Beauty's clearance section. I think it was $3.99 if my memory serves well. Not bad for a polish that was released not too long ago. It's a lovely pale lavender with a cream finish. Formula wasn't too thick or thin, fairly easy to work with, and was opaque in two coats.
