Goood Morning loves!
Today's theme in the 31 Day Challenge is gradients! I really enjoy gradient nails and don't find myself doing them enough. For today's nails I wanted to try and add something a little extra to the gradient. I was stumbling around the internet and found this image of shadows jumping over a lake at night. I decided to try and recreate this image!
I started off with a white creme base using Cult Nails Tempest just to give a good base for the gradient. Then I painted directly onto a makeup sponge using Sephora by OPI Never Enough Shoes, butter LONDON Giddy Kipper and Pure Ice Bikini on top.
I sponged the polish onto my nails until I had a gradient I was happy with. It's not the most perfectly blended gradient, but I still really like it! Then using Sephora by OPI Never Enough Shoes I freehanded the figures jumping in the air! I tried to make them all a little different in shape and size to give the effect of how it would look if a real group of people were jumping!
These were really fun to do and I'm glad I went a little bit of a different route for the gradient theme! I can't believe we are already a third of the way through this challenge. It is flying by and I'm really proud of some of the manicures that I've come up with already :)
