31 Day Challenge - Gradient

Day 10 of the 31 Day Challenge is gradient! I almost didn't get this challenge done today because I was out so late at Sundance. But then I saw that the challenge was for gradient nails, and I decided to go for it since gradiented manicures are so easy to do! Gradients are probably my favorite kind of nail art simply because they're hard to mess up and so aesthetically pleasing. No joke, this manicure took me about 15 minutes from start to clean-up, and most of that time was spent waiting for the base to dry.

 The last picture isn't the best, but I wanted to make sure you could see the holo goodness! I'm still very new to taking nail polish photos, and holos are particularly difficult to capture, but this is honestly how holo this manicure is in dim lighting. It's amazing! I can't wait to see how crazy holo this is in the sunlight (if we would ever get any...) This gradient was done using two exceptional indie brand polishes, Cirque Cypress and Takko Lacquer Va Va Voom.  


Bonus picture, I met Michael Cera at Sundance last night! I love Arrested Development and he's adorable and super nice.

Have a wonderful weekend, and thanks for reading!

    1. My only regret is that it's so blurry! You can't see the maximum adorableness at such a low resolution. D:
