Oh my, it's yet another week and time for the next Finnish(able) Nail Art Challenge manicures. This week, week six, the two themes are Love This Technique and The One That Never Got On Nails and I decided to start with the first one, the technique one. Actually I did these nails a little bit in advance since these were also my I Love Me -fair nails.
If you have been reading my blog even a little longer, you probably already know that I loooove doing gradients. So it's no wonder I chose to do one for this theme. Gradients are very easy to do, they always look really beautiful and there are endless number of variations that you can do just with changing the colors or using different types of polishes. So yeah, gradients are pretty much my all time favorite nail art technique. I also love using water decals, they are another easy way to give your manicure something extra, so I thought they would be perfect addition to this gradient and this theme.
I wanted to use some of my favorite polishes for my I Love Me nails so I did the gradient with three gorgeous Zoyas: Dillon, Zuza and Remy. I've had those feather water decals for quite a while and I can't really remember where I bought those, but I though it was about time to use them. I also wanted to make the manicure just a little bit more special and what's really better way of doing that than adding some sparkle! Color Club Beyond the Mistletoe seemed to be the perfect glitter for that task, so I took a little nail art brush and added some of that on top of all the feathers.
I really loved this manicure, every part of it! It has some of my favorite polishes and colors in it, I used Zoyas and especially those gorgeous shimmery ones, there's a beautiful gradient going on here and those water decals and that little bit of glitter were just perfect addition to the manicure.
It was no-brainer for me to choose a gradient for this challenge though I might have also made a water marbling manicure too, because that's another technique that I really love.
Which is your favorite nail art technique?
