Did a gradient with metallic blue and metallic mauve at the tips. In the photo the gradient looks like light falling on my nails.
Metallic Blue – Lakme
Metallic mauve – Elle 18
To create the gradient I applied the nail polish in such a way that the quantity deposited towards the end of the nail was lesser than at the start.
The metallic blue was quite thin and needed multiple layers to get a dense shade. Since I did a gradient this was convenient. It dries quite fast despite the number of coats applied. (That was convenient as I just can’t sit around waiting for nail polish to dry ever!)
The metallic mauve is a pretty silvery mauve. This color took slightly longer than the blue to dry.
