I was so inspired by this thread that I just tried gradient nails for the first time!





Its OPIs Cozu-melted in the Sun, the middle bit is Not Like the Movies, and the tips are Bling Dynasty.

I'm excited to do this again next time and get better at it! And I'm excited to try different color combos. It was wayyy easier than I expected

Take two, with sparkles! You can't really see the true colors, my phone sucks at pictures, maybe I'll have DBF take a picture with his when he gets home, for some reason his phones camera is a million times better than mine...





Its NYCs Mulberry street fading into OPIs Cozu-melted in the Sun, with OPIs Teenage Dream on the tips. And I was kinda sloppy and haven't cleaned up my smudges yet...

I am super bad at applying polish, and my nails are recovering from stress-induced biting, but here are some of mine.

I love the effect of magnetic nail polish, but either I'm super bad at applying it or my nails are just weird shapes, I can never get the effect to cover the whole nail. Looks quite nice with it just on half the nail though.



Of course, if anyone has any ideas what I might be doing wrong, I'm all ears!

I shall live vicariously through this thread.


Oof, that sucks! Being that I work with saws and metal all day, I break my nails on a regular basis, and I always get in such a huff when I have to have nubbies! It wouldn't bother me if I had nice long nail beds, but I don't >.>

Lovely nails! So shiney!

Maybe after I get the kit, I'll check on the swap board to see if people are willing to sell the colors they don't use or maybe swap colors with me.


It would definitely suit you, I love having the option not to do my nails for a week, or a fortnight (or even a month if I'm lazy!) without them looking awful. I usually do my colour in a gradient to clear near the cuticles, so that when they've grown out significantly, it's not obvious =3

I love this colour combination! We don't get Wet n' Wild here. Glitterlust!

I actually like this effect! I have a similar problem- I have bumpy, oddly shaped nail plates and the design doesn't take around the edges, and in an arch where my nail grows out past my nail bed o.o Maybe we both just have weird claws!
