Sally Hansen Sugar Coats: Dotted Gradient

Hi everyone!

Yesterday I promised you some nail art using by brand new Sally Hansen Sugar Coats and that’s what I have for you today! A simple but pretty dotted gradient.

I started off with 3 coats of Tip Top Nail Chic – Cream Puff and then used 3 different sized dotting tools to apply first Razzleberry and then Sour Apple from the Sally Hansen Sugar Coats. This is super simple nail art but I really like it on my nails!

Firstly, I thought I’d create a girly gradient using Cherry Drop, Cotton Candies, and Sugar Fix, and then stamp some heart images over it. Well, the gradient part went fine:

But when it came to the stamping, I just couldn’t get it to work. Now, I do mostly blame myself for that, because I know I’m not great at stamping – but even when I tried using a small heart rather than a full nail image, I could barely get any of the stamp to transfer. It worked on the plain base coat I had on my right hand, so I think the texture or formula of the sugar coat had something to do with it (I’ve stamped over a liquid sand with some success before).      sally hansen sugar coat gradient cotton candies, sugar fix, and cherry dropLuckily, the gradient alone is really pretty!

    I prefer the green and blue. Super weird texture, but cute 🙂
    Razleberry makes me think only of The Mindy Project… ; )

    Love it! I especially love the gradient! Going to go scratch in my stash tonight to see if I don’t have any of those colors in normal polish because they work together beautifully! Gorgeous!

    Oh my gosh this is gorgeous. That gradient is to die for!!!

    I love the contrasting of the blue and green but I do love the girly and pink one too. It’s a tough choice. Luckily we don’t have to choose because you can do both! Yay!!!
