Quick Gelly Gradient
I have gone back to basics for work tomorrow. I had no idea what I wanted to create, but I wanted it to be something simple, with muted colours. With this in mind, I started with a base of Barry M's Lychee... still love that colour! I then had a look at my other polishes, and Papaya, the orange gelly, stood out most. I used a make-up sponge to dab on a gradient.
In these pics, the 'join' and sponge marks are really obvious. In real life it appears to blend more seamlessly. I was going to add some studs, but I didn't want to overload the mani. I might add some tomorrow if I can decide how, where and which ones to use!
I still need to do this week's challenge mani (inspired by a colour) but at the same time, keep it work-friendly. I'm not going to cheat and say this one is it, because it really wasn't inspired by a specific colour, just the need for it to be not too in-your-face. I'll have a think and see what I can come up with later in the week... probably going to be inspired by pink - because I love pink!
The pics also really don't capture how bright the orange is and how pale the cream is. Ahhh. Here's some more anyway:
