Pink Gradient with dots...

A bit of jolly nail art for my newly rounded nails! I chose a couple of blue-leaning pinks for the gradient (Essie Go Ginza and DJ Play That Song), then added nude dots with Barry M Lychee. I put the dots on straight away, so no pictures of the gradient on its own, sorry! The gradient was done with my usual method of a fine, damp makeup sponge; I painted one coat of the lighter pink (Go Ginza) to give the gradient a base. DJ Play That Song is rather jellyish, but the formula blended well with the other Essie polish for the gradient and I love how the pale pink base of Go Ginza really makes the colour pop.

I really enjoyed this combination of colours, and I'm getting used to the new shape now - I was sad when I finally had to remove this mani the other day because there was too much growth around my cuticles.

All polishes in this post are from my personal collection. Barry M Lychee is one of my favourite nudes, especially for nail art - the formula is so rich and dense it works fabulously well for dots, striping and stamping.

  1. Your gradients and dots are wonderful (as always)! I can see why you wouldn't want to take off such a fun combination!

    1. Thank you! I do keep trying smaller dots, but I like the effect of the big ones best!

  4. LOVE the big polka dots. Do you use a massive dotting tool or just build them up? Every time I try it looks awkward x

    1. Thank you - yes, big 'dotting tool'. Actually it's one of my metal doming punches, but anything that is a metal (or hard plastic) ball on a handle will work.
