Sunset Gradient

Is there really anything better than a great gradient? Not really if you ask me! I have one of those to share with you guys today and I have to say I really loved this look.



Once again I used the Essie Silk Watercolor polishes for this nail art look. This time though I didn't use those blues and greens that I have used quite a few time - instead I chose the red and orange ones for this look. 

I did the look by first using two coats of the beautiful Zoya PixieDust called Tomoko. It's such a beautiful champagne shade, I love it! I wanted to share my swatch of it in this post too as I believe I haven't swatched it before.

Then I applied a generous coat of top coat over Tomoko to make it more smooth and after the coat of top coat was dry I started to apply the Silk Watercolor polishes. I used the crimson one called Highest Bidder near my cuticles, the rose one called Blush Stroke in the middle and the orange one called Art New-Beau on the tips. I applied the polishes using their own brushes and just tried to blend them together a bit to avoid too sharp lines between the colors.


The shades really reminded me of a beautiful summer sunset, though maybe these could also be the beautiful fall colors which would make it a bit more season appropriate manicure. Be it summer or fall look, I really really loved it and wore it the whole week straight. And once again I'm loving these Essie Silk Watercolor polishes, they are sooo versatile!

  1. Ihan huippuhyvä ajatus! En tajunnut vesivärilakkojen käyttöä ennen kuin avasin postauksen, sitä ennen mietin, että mitkä lakat näyttää näin hyvältä. Tosi nätit kynnet! :)
