The polishes used in this post were previously provided for review.
A while ago on Snapchat I shared a step-by-step for how I do gradient nails. Of course, the result was (as expected) some pretty gradient nails. I used some lovely holos for these so they came out extra-gorgeous!
You may have noticed that I often combine finishes – a creme and a metallic, or smooth and textured polishes – in the same manicure. For many types of nail art, this can have a really cool effect. When it comes to gradients, though, I usually stick to using similar finishes together. In this case, I used 3 polishes from the same collection (I love it when a collection is nice and cohesive and the polishes work well together!). These are all from Darling Diva’s Deadpool collection. I swatched and reviewed the 3 polishes here.
I used Darling Diva Sexy Motherfucker at the base of my nails, Francis at the tips and What in the Ass? between the two. They are just stunning together.
I didn’t add anything on top of this gradient because sometimes it’s best to keep it simple – and I ended up getting a lot of compliments on these. What do you think? Do you love a good gradient as much as I do?
