I couldn’t resist and did it again.
The new and much smoother technique by Sammy from The Nailasaurus still makes me love and adore gradient nails so I had to try another gradient manicure today.
This time I wanted to raise the difficulty level a bit with making a gradient with three instead of two colors and also sponge a diagonal gradient instead of a straight gradient. I was also in the mood for bright colors so I picked Illamasqua Insanity (bright orange), Alarm (bright red) and Stance (vivid purple with fuchsia undertones).
The result of the combination of Insanity, Alarm and Stance is a bright and fun summer manicure and I am really happy how it turned out.
So bright it almost makes my eyes hurt while staring at my nails. The orange Insanity is even brighter in real life. ♥
Sadly I couldn’t find Insanity on the Illamasqua and Sephora websites so it might be discontinued. If you have Illamasqua Gamma – a neon orange – it would work too just as any other bright orange.
For this gradient manicure I needed to sponge four coats of the gradient on each nail to get a nice transition especially between the red Alarm and the purple Stance but it was worth it and I love the result. This gradient manicure looks like a summery cocktail and even makes me a bit thirsty.
Have you tried a gradient manicure in the meantime and if yes did you like the result?
Thanks for looking and have a great weekend! ♥
