Day 10 - Gradient Nails

Day 10 - Gradient Nails

Hii everyone!

First, sorry this post is a little late going up! I attempted gradient nails last night and they were all so ugly. I don't know why I just couldn't get it to work. I guess I was lacking inspiration, until today!

Originally I was going to just post the gradient and save the zebra print for Day 13, but that's kind of a cop out so here is the end result! :) I think they turned out awesome. I ran into my sisters room to show her haha I love them. 

I used China Glaze polishes for the gradient. From dark to light is Passion in the Pacific, For Audrey, and Sea Spray. I then did a coat of Seche Vite and added the black zebra stripes using a black Stripe Rite. And topped again with a coat of Seche Vite. 

Here is the manicure prior to the zebra stripes. I think the stripes help hide the imperfections of the gradient. Flows better. 

So that's day 10! This is one of my favorites so far I think. Well, other than Lisa Frank Rainbow nails. Those are just on another level.

What do you guys think?!
