The giveaway ends in 4 days, so please be quick !


Today is gradient day ! I love a good gradient, so I had fun with this one ! Since spring is coming round, I went for corals – both EssieTart Deco is the paler of the two, Meet Me At Sunset is the deeper orangey coral. I also tried a cool new technique (okay, it went up 2 years ago, but it’s new to me !) that I discovered through Tartofraises – I used a fan brush to gradient, instead of a sponge – it’s so much neater ! Tartofraise’s video is here. She uses acrylic paint, but I used nail polish and that worked fine 🙂

As sad as I’ll be when this challenge is over, I think my ‘to swatch’ box could do with being looked after  !

    I am obsessed with corals and love this color combo. The dots add a element of whimsy and surprise, well-done Brijit, I am loving your nail ideas, am so looking forward to the Memory Splice tribal and se see my linear holo topcoat. It works great for gradients, BTW. On my naisl today- Ozotic Pro Mish Mash 524- one of the last bottles imported to the US before the 500 series were discontinued, the saddest day in nail history IMHO:) It was the inspiration for my own Pixie Polish multichrome linear holos.

  5. I like this a lot. 🙂 I’m always for polka dots!

    I’m determined to find myself a good coral polish this summer! These look beautiful on you.

  7. They remind me of cute dinosaur eggs! ^^
