While I Was Gone: 4 Gradients

Gradient Nail Art by The Nailasaurus

Please let me be the first to call myself out on the lack of blog posts coming from this direction over the last month or so. There is no big reason for my extended absence; for one reason or another I just haven’t been feeling it for a while.

I’m still thinking about blogging every single day, multiple times a day… okay basically just all the time. It’s in my bones now and I can’t escape it. The ideas keep on coming but I’m lagging a little on the execution side of things. I’m sure some of you know exactly where I’m coming from with this. Please tell me I’m not alone!

I’ve obviously been keeping myself busy with nail art and snapping pics the whole time though. We all know how much I love a gradient and what’s better than one gradient? Lots of them! I did neglect notekeeping duties on occasion but all the info under the images is correct to the best of my knowledge!

  • Yes I know exactly what you mean. I think summer is a difficult time to blog, at least for me, because I just want to sit in the sun all day and do nothing, lol. Your gradients are perfection, give me your skills!! <3

  • Glad to see you’re back and posting! I know what you mean when you say you’re wanting to blog, you have the urge, you just can’t get yourself to do it. I’ve just gotten out of that kind of rut so hopefully you will do too soon. I adore these gradient designs, although the techniques are fairly similar the results of each are so different and unique!

  • Those are some pretty gradient!

  • Cindi

    Love those manicures! I can’t say which is my favorite, but I am drawn to the mint green one with the silver beads.

  • Arathael

    As always, flawless! Watercolor one is my fave!

  • Marisa (Polish Obsession)

    These are so lovely!!

  • Miss you! Welcome back 🙂
    And yes…doing the nails and taking the photos is cake. It’s the writing that always trips me up. Instagram is just so easy to share that I get backed up on the blog.

  • Lacky Corner

    Since the weather here in Sweden hasn’t shown that it’s summer there has been no problems blogging for me, but when the sun starts to shine you kind of want to be out there instead. Love all these manicures, but the watercolor one is my favorite.

  • I’m glad you’re back. You manicures are fantastic <3

  • All the gradients are gorgeous!
    I’ve been feeling the exact same thing! My reason for being inconsistant blogging is my newborn baby girl. But I push myself to post because is the only thing I do out of being a mom and I need it for my mental sanity, LOL

  • I love the blue nails the best its so pretty totally need to try this!

  • You are a gradient queen! You will be back on track soon. 🙂

  • Renlish

    Seriously gorgeous nails! Love the minty one. 🙂

  • I am happy you’re back! Your gradients are as perfect as always <3

  • Frankie Hunter

    Yes Sammy, you are not alone!
    I love your art, you clean pics, they are so inspirational to me. Everytime you post a gradient, I want to do one too. I know exactly, how you feel and beg you, don’t stop blogging! Don’t force yourself, but don’t stop entirely either! I would miss you so much!

  • Isabelle C.

    Glad to see you posting! I missed your style! I completely understand what you mean. Sometimes there’s just a block, or a rut, or something that’s just inexplicable… Just know that whatever pace you go at, we’ll be here!

  • That watercolor gradient is absolutely stunning! And I definitely understand where you’re coming from with the blogging executing issues. Everyone’s been there, it just takes time to shake it off.

  • Love your watercolour gradient, it reminds me of the ocean, so cool

  • This manicures are so beautiful!!!! The blue one is my favorite! 🙂

  • Wow that looks awesome!

  • beautiful manicures! i find summer easier to post than winter as i feel l like i have less on my mind in comparison to the summer time

  • I totally know what you mean! I’ve heard a lot of bloggers say the same thing. Beautiful nails, I’m inspired to do a gradient now!

  • I know EXACTLY what you mean about blogging – so glad I’m not the only one who gets into that sort of mood and can’t get out.

    That mint gradient is so subtle – and my favourite one, surprisingly – JUST GORGEOUS.

  • Apoorva Rao

    Beautiful colours! Very elegant!! Picking up a lot from here for my daily nail work 🙂

  • Ok, besides saying how amazing your gradients are, and how in love I am with the blue one… THANK GOD im not the only one lazy around this timeeee! I have sooo many ideas and things I wanna do… but… the night comes and I did nothing! Hahaha
