31DC2014: Day 10 - Gradient

Hi everyone! I was really looking forward to today because I love gradients and I've really gotten the technique down pat, but today feels like a fail day. It's not though, because it's a really amazing gradient in person, the colours are very vivid and bright and I'm so in love with it, but the photos come nowhere near close to how it looks in person. It's so disheartening when this happens because all I want to do is show off how proud I am of it but I can't. Another problem was that when I sat down on the ground in front of my light box I hit my nails on the treadmill next to it and ruined two of them. I'm not going to lie, I genuinely almost cried, it was so frustrating. I quickly did the whole 'lick your finger and push the polish back' method which helped a lot because it was so much worse than it ended up. Then I did even more damage control by dotting some white onto the areas that the nail was showing through and sponged the green back on a few times.

I just feel a bit deflated about this whole post today so I'll just tell you the polishes and show the pictures. I used Spring Break - Ulta3, Butler Please - Essie and Urban Utopia - Maybelline Color Show.



I know they aren't awful and they're actually really well blended and I'm super proud of that, but I'm just annoyed that purple isn't as bright and deep as it is in person. Ahh the perils of nail blogging. Oh well.
