My First (Reasonably Successful) Attempt at Purple Gradient Nails

Here are some pictures of purple gradient-style nail polish that I tried out earlier today. I have finals this week so naturally I am finding many things to do as a (not so productive) alternative to studying =P
 I think this is a really fun and not too difficult way of spicing your nails up a bit without having to go to a nail salon or glue on false nails! Once I have more practice with this technique I will post a tutorial on it, either a picture tutorial on here or a video tutorial in my YouTube channel.

One word of warning when trying nails like this: basically, you are layering bands of nail polish further and further down your nail so that the tip has about 8 coats of nail polish on it by the time you are done. Make sure you have enough time to let it dry completely because even though the top layer feels dry, the under layers are still squishy and prone to smudging! As well, I recommend using a fast drying top coat to help speed up the process. I have a review on my favorite nail top coat of all time coming soon!
I'm pretty happy with how these nails turned out for a first try! Let me know what you think. Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a beautiful day!
xoxo, Caitlin
