3D gradient

There were a couple of comments on my blue stripes on my previous post on Instagram, that they looked a bit 3 D. I’ve seen that sometimes when I use top coat between layers and it’s a pretty neat side effect. So today I wanted to do it more on purpose than just having it happen by chance.

For my base I did a gradient of my beloved LimeCrime polishes. I love to blend them together because they are so pretty together and blend really well in the gradient. Today I used ‘Crema di Limón’, ‘Peaches & cream’, ‘Parfait dream’ and ‘Lavendairy’. After I top coated that I did a spotted water marble with OPI ‘My Boyfriend scales walls’. Then I top coated two times to see if I could enhance the 3 D effect for my last layer that was Sally Hansen ‘300 White on’ in another spotted water marble. I’m not sure I reached my goal in obtaining a greater 3 D effect, but it came out like a cool mani nevertheless.

Today the sun is out and I got to take a nice walk with my daughter, who was home from school today since she had a fever yesterday. Today she was feeling better and it was so nice to enjoy a walk with her, just us two. And because I’m a nail nerd I HAD to snap a picture of my nails in the sun.

    Åh vad fint! Lime Crime saknas i min samling, men det ser ut som om jag får råda bot på det. 😛 Vackra lack och sån häftig effekt!

      De är underbara. Lite tjockare i konsistensen så man får vara lite försiktig i målningen. Men färgerna är to die for och de är perfekta att göra gradients med.
