Good morning ladies! Thank God it’s my last day of work for the week! I need to be able to sleep in tomorrow, haha!
So I know that most of my US readers are going to be stuffing their faces with turkey dinner, and believe me, I wish I was there to join you! I love turkey dinner, it’s my favourite meal right behind a big feed of spaghetti! However, the radio stations around here are starting to play Christmas music, so today I have started to wear my Christmas earrings! I love wearing Christmas earrings, and if I could get away with it without looking like a complete fool, I would wear them year-round ;D
Today I have for you my nails for Day 8 of the November Nail Art Challenge… can you believe it’s almost over 😥 This month has flown, I can’t believe it’s almost December, almost the end of the year!
Day 8 is Gradient Nails. I know a lot of girls have trouble with this one, but I believe that practice makes perfect (well as close to perfect as humanly possible 😉 ) so the more often we do it, the better we’re going to be at it! Heck, I have problems with it, but I just embrace it 😀 Each time I do a gradient I get better at it 😀 Gradients take a lot of trial and error and patience 🙂
I’m pretty darned proud of this gradient 😀 For this I used OPI Fiercely Fiona for my base colour, from the Shrek Collection. Then, with my trusty kitchen sponge (the yellow ones with the green scrubby on the back), I sponged on OPI Who The Shrek Are You?, also from the Shrek Collection 🙂 I think this turned out pretty awesome! *pats own back* Now, although Fiercely Fiona is a diarrhea/pea soup green, with some nail art (like gradients or stamping) it doesn’t look so bad. It would actually make for a really good slime colour for Hallowe’en nail art 🙂
The Shrek Collection is kinda tricky to find, and it’s not normally cheap if you do find it. So if you happen upon any of the collection for a good/regular OPI price, snag it if you want it! 😀 I got these in a mini set from Tara from Kelara Lacquers (blog sale).
