31 Day nail challenge-Day 9 and 10!

Since I haven’t posted anything for a few days, I decided to show 2 days! Rainbow and Gradient. I wasn’t super happy about how the rainbow nails turned out, but it could’ve been worse. Right?



I’m not sure what colours I used for each, but it’s rainbow, so as long as you have the 6 basic colours, it’ll work just fine. I used a toothpick to do each of the drips, but you could use just about anything that has a fine tip. (Sorry for the picture quality)


For the gradient nails, I used 2 Sally Hansen polishes for the black and white, and the gray is Grey Matter from Rimmel. The accent nail is ¬†coats of Salt n’ Peppa from Lush Lacquer. To get the gradient effect, I used a small makeup sponge. There’s about a million videos on Youtube¬†on how to do it. It’s incredibly simple, but does require a bit of extra clean up. It’s worth it though since it’s virtually impossible to mess up. And it looks super impressive! (The lady interviewing me at Sephora was totally impressed with them!)

Thanks for reading! Sorry I’ve been a bit behind! I’ll get better at posting!

    Do you find that particular white Sally Hansen polish can get a bit gloopy or is it just me?

      It can get a bit gloopy when trying to do the entire nail with it. The way I did it , it was okay. I’m trying to find a really good white, so if you have any suggestions, let me know!
