Nail Art A Go-Go Challenge Day 4: Monochrome nails

Hi everyone!

It’s day 4 of the challenge and today’s theme is monochrome nails. That means I can use different shades of any one colour… and of course, I picked purple 🙂 The first idea I had for this didn’t really work out, but luckily I had time for another try and came up with something pretty.tip-top-nail-chic-fairy-dust-sally-hansen-good-to-grape-and-purple-pulse-gradient-half-moonA half-moon gradient! They’re not perfect, but I think they’re pretty enough. tip-top-nail-chic-fairy-dust-sally-hansen-good-to-grape-and-purple-pulse-gradient-half-moonI started off with 2 coats of Tip Top Nail Chic Fairy Dust. Once it was dry, I used hole reinforcer stickers to mark off the half-moon shape and sponged on a gradient using Fairy Dust along with Sally Hansen Good to Grape and Purple Pulse. tip-top-nail-chic-fairy-dust-sally-hansen-good-to-grape-and-purple-pulse-gradient-half-moonOnce that was done, I decided to try it with a matte top coat as well: tip-top-nail-chic-fairy-dust-sally-hansen-good-to-grape-and-purple-pulse-gradient-half-moonEven better! I just love this mattified!

      Thank you! Well I love purples, but of course it would look just as cool in any colour scheme 🙂
