Something Sweet

It's been a long time since I did a gradient. I've really been in the mood to create some gradient nails for a while now but I couldn't think up a colour combination that I was really happy with and that I hadn't already done! Blue and brown sounds wrong when you put the words together but I've always loved them paired as colours. I really have gone super girly recently. This is a very soft set of colours for me!




I used two coats of Barry M Blueberry as my base colour and created the gradient with Essie Glamour Purse using a makeup sponge, following this tutorial. I topped it with two coats of Seche Vite for an ultra glassy look.

  4. I've used brown (the one from China Glaze Hunger Games) with lilac (a-england guinevere and ascalon) and the bright blue from cirque du soleil last month, then tonight I've paired it with a Tiffany shade of green. Love this combi with pale blue, may just reach for the Blueberry next time!
