I wanted to try a gradient that is not usually in my color scheme this week. Yellow and green seem to blend well together and they are 2 new colors that a friend recently gave me so I thought this would be a good opportunity to use them. I first painted 2 coats of Essie Moonstruck as my base. This polish would probably reach opacity in 3 coats but I thought 2 would suffice for my gradient. Next, while the base polish is still tacky, I painted Ettusais 9, a sheer yellow sparkly polish, on the top 2/3 of my nail. Next, while it was still a bit wet, I painted Ettusais 15, a less sheer sparkly green with silver hexagon flakes, near the tips of my nails. I repeated step 2 and 3 once more to really blend in the gradient. Remember to use thin coats so it does not get too thick!
In the second picture, I painted Ettusais 10, a sparkly bronze, near the cuticles to make the white less harsh. Which look do you prefer? Are there any color combinations you would like to see for next week? Let me know! You can find out more about Ettusais here.
