31DC2015 Day 10: Gradient!

Painted Fingertips | Water Marble Gradient for #31DC2014 Day 10 - gradient

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme is gradient, and I finally got around to doing some nails I’ve been meaning to do for ages. For this same prompt last year, Sarah from Chalkboard Nails did some fireflies on a sunset gradient. The look was hugely popular and I loved it too! I have finally done my own version. Painted Fingertips | Fireflies at sunsetI started off with a gradient using Tip Top Star Bright, Essence Break Through, Tip Top Flamenco Pink, and Catrice Pimp my Shrimp. Painted Fingertips | Fireflies at sunsetI used black acrylic paint to add the grass and then used yellow paint for the little fireflies. Painted Fingertips | Fireflies at sunsetI considered a matte finish but ended up liking it better shiny. Painted Fingertips | Fireflies at sunsetIn previous years, I did a very glittery Gem Crush gradient and a water marble gradient. I really loved the water marble gradient, it was such a cool idea! I really like the colours and the freehand art in today’s look. What do you think?
