Valentine’s Day Holographic Gradient Nail Art

You may notice that things are looking a little different around here. Over the weekend, I finalised the redesign on my blog and I really love the new look! It’s been a long time coming so it’s such a great feeling to tick it off my to-do list. I wanted to clean up all the clutter and make things a bit airier so I’m really pleased with the outcome and my favourite part is the bigger pictures! I hope you guys like it too but if you have any suggestions for functionality or features that could make it better for you to visit, look around and read, then I’d really like to hear your thoughts.
Today’s nail art features a few from the new piCture pOlish collaboration collection – the Bijou Holos. These two shades are just so perfect for Valentine’s day so I thought I’d combine them for a sweet as sugar Valentine’s gradient.

I used piCture pOlish Pirouette for the base colour and then created a gradient using piCture pOlish Scarlett.  There’s gradient tutorial here.
I had to remove the gradient from two of my nails after a failed stamping attempt so I painted them again with Scarlett and then stamped using Bundle Monster Plate BM421 and BK Matte White.
It’s all topped off with a coat of Glisten and Glow HK Girl.

Here are a few shots of the gradient before any nail art.
