31DC2016 Day 10: Birds at Sunset for a Gradient

Painted Fingertips | Freehand birds at sunset for the #31DC2016 - gradient

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme for the 31 Day Challenge is a gradient. I decided to be creative with this one and not do the type of gradient we’re used to. Painted Fingertips | Freehand birds at sunset for the #31DC2016 - gradient

I decided to create this rougher, more artsy-looking gradient sunset instead – and added some loving birds in a tree, and a distant city. I was inspired by this picture which I originally came across in a Google image search. I’m not sure if that’s the original source of the image, but I loved it and really wanted it on my nails!

I started with a base of Sinful Colors Snow Me White, added a matte top coat to paint on, and then did the entire look freehand using acrylic paints. Painted Fingertips | Freehand birds at sunset for the #31DC2016 - gradient

This might just be one of my favourite nail art looks ever – it was both fun and challenging to do, and it’s just so cute! In previous years, I’ve done a very sparkly glitter gradient, a water marble gradient, and a sunset and fireflies gradient.
