NOTD - Psychedelic Brights

/ 14 comments
This started off as a gradient that went awfully wrong, so I thought 'Sack this!' and moved on to marbling instead. I wanted to use fun, tropical shades to compensate for the utterly MISERABLE weather outside...


 I used a a pale yellow Barry M shade as a base, Beauty UK 'Strength' (hot pink) and a turquoise mood polish from Claires. I love the patterns marbling gives, kinda like tie dye. If you want to try it out yourself, check out this tutorial.

I might give gradients another go...but not for a while... My left hand simply doesn't understand the idea and loves splodging colour everywhere except where I want it. Ah well!

Are you any good at gradients? Got any tips?

  8. Nice! Love the funky colors :)

    And no, I tried gradient nails a few times and it looked horrible. The only way I could do one is by building up a glitter polish with multiple layers..
