High Contrast

Where I mixed the two colours for this gradient in the middle, they swirled together and created a purple section in the middle. This has never happened to me before! I don’t know why I’m so excited about this snippet of basic colour science but I thought it was cool!
All my waterfalls so far have been fairly subtle, at least compared to this one. I always tried to keeps the base colour and waterfall colours in the same scheme so today I wanted to try something with a bit more contrast that would really stand out. And I like it!

My base colour is NYC Bubblegum Pink and I created the gradient using a make up sponge and Sally Hansen Himalayan Blue. There’s a tutorial for that here.

For the waterfall nails, my colours were NYC Pier 17NYC RaindropSally Hansen Pacific Blue and Sally Hansen Himalayan Blue. You’ll find that tutorial here!
It’s all topped off with two coats of No7 Stay Perfect Top Coat.
