This is a follow-up on my post from yesterday. Quite by accident (aka just not paying attention), I mixed Zoya’s ‘Tanzy’ with ‘Rica’ on my nails. I saw the potential of something cool. So, after I had my nails polished at the salon, I came home and did this…
I made a gradiated effect with Zoya’s ‘Rica’ on the tips. I like that it is very subtle however, I hope you can see it in the photos. I got some strong, evening sunlight happening here.
I think this last photo captures it the best, but it is WAY more sparkly in person. Both polishes are.
I tried this first with a sponge. But since the polishes are very close in color, I ended up just layering, with just the bottle’s brush, the tips, 3 times at shorter and shorter lengths so the color built up on just the tips. And to think, I wasn’t going to order both of these colors. As I mentioned yesterday, I’m not a lover of orange polish. So, I’m VERY happy with ‘Tanzy’ and had fun with ‘Rica’ to make flame-tip fingernails.
This was my first attempt at gradiation. Have you tried it? What method did you use to create your look?
