MSMD manicure-FAIL!

I was hoping to repeat the gorgeous holo gradient manicure that Nicole of nailpolishwars had done here. I have all the polishes she used. I've done gradients before. I thought I knew better and even practiced on swatch sticks. I wanted to do a green/blue combo instead of the orange/pink. I failed. I did not pick colors that were close enough in density to obtain a smooth gradient no matter how hard I tried. So after using 4 GORGEOUS polishes I caved and removed it without even topcoating. live and learn.

  1. oh no! that would have looked so cool - what if you did it without the lightest green, just 2 colours ? xx

  2. I think looks great but I say the same that The crumpet, maybe with 2 colours can be better.

  3. I tried it with A England St George and Tristam. Unfortunately the colours were both so dark that you couldn't really tell the difference between the two.
