Turquoise Gradient

Painted Fingertips | Turquoise gradient

Hi everyone!

Today I have a simple but lovely gradient to share with you. I actually did this gradient to practice one potential option for my wedding nails! I’m getting married next month and I’ve picked everything I need except for what to do on my nails. There are just too many options!Painted Fingertips | Turquoise gradientFor this gradient, I used LA Girl Matte Alpine Green, Tip Top Blue Meets Green, and Essie In the Cab-ana. Painted Fingertips | Turquoise gradientAfter using In the Cab-ana as a base, I used a makeup sponge to apply the 3 colours for the gradient. These colours go great together and a simple gradient is such a lovely nail look.

Painted Fingertips | Turquoise gradientI actually can’t decide if I like it better with or without the glitter! Painted Fingertips | Turquoise gradientWhat do you think?

    Oh wow that’s a lovely gradient. In the photos I think I like them.better without the glitter but that can be so different in real life.

      Thank you! On the photos I ended up preferring the pre-glitter look as well.

    Ooh, love that sparkle you added on top! 🙂 I’m kind of glad I wasn’t into nails when I was married – I did some very simple nails (or had them done, lol).

      Thanks! Yes, it’s a real dilemma. I feel like nothing I do will be special enough so I think I’ll end up sticking with something (relatively) simple.

    Your gradient looks like faded denim to me and has sort of a grungy look to it which I love. But when you added the glitter topper it changed the entire feel of the manicure for me and it looked like a night sky. Both looks I really like!

      Thanks! Yeah it did change the feel of it quite a bit. Way more girly but both are lovely!

    The glitter over the gradient really ties it altogether. It looks so lovely.
