As requested by Malin I’m going to show you the background of my Minecraft nails before I started my detailing. First I did a gradient using four colors, put top coat on and let that sit over night. The next day I started taping off my fingers one by one and tried to make the beams get progressively bigger. And then I sponged my next gradient over that using three colors in a slightly different hue to try to stay true to my inspiration picture. The trick with tape I have found is to remove it right away and have as thin coats of polish over it as possible to minimize the dragging risk.

I really like this effect but the color scheme throws me off a bit. Next time I try it I’ll use other colors.

    Ja! Älskar gradienten, och färgerna är helt okej, även om de inte heller hade varit mitt förstaval. Och jag förstår att du inte riktigt trivs i dem. 🙂 Vill gärna se denna typ av gradient/striping fler gånger, i andra färgvarianter. Jättefint!!

    Tack 🙂
    Verkligen supersnyggt! Då har jag något att se fram emot om du väljer att göra om det i en annan färgkombination 🙂
