Picture Polish Gradient Using Chillax & Swagger

So I’m really trying to jump into nail art and it’s a slow go.  I’ve been attempting it for about 2 years now, but I decided a few weeks ago that this time I was serious.

One technique I never had quite right was the nail gradient.  They look so gorgeous on all the ladies that have mastered them, but every time I tried it, it was just all bad.

Until last night.  I went on Youtube and watched a few tutorials to get motivated and then I tried it… and here are the results.

I recently purchased piCture pOlish Swagger and Chillax and figured they might look good together, so lets give it a try!  I think I was right! I’m pleased with the outcome.

The glitter is Nicole by OPI Pixie Glitter and OPI Matte Top Coat over it.  Still happy with the look of it!
