Yay - it's Halloween Challenge day again. I've really begun to look forward to these posts, and today's is no exception.
For today's gradient theme I chose to do a sunset colour combination with black silhouetted cats.
I started with a base of Ulta3 Lily white to get a nice blank canvas to work with. I then used Kleancolor polishes to create the gradient, Metallic Sapphire, Metallic Purple, Metallic Mango and Metallic Yellow.
To create my gradients, I paint my polish directly onto the makeup sponge in small lines. I then dab that on my nail and do two nails with the polish on the sponge. I work my way through my nails doing two at at time. When I do the second coat, I dab the sponge onto the second finger first and then back onto the first finger, that way they get an even amount of polish.
I cheated for the cats and made some home made water decals. The black ink on my printer is a little transparent and I probably should have gone over the ink with a black marker to get it blacker, but never mind, I still love the effect and LOVE the kitties on my nails.
Here is what my gradient looked like before I added the black cats.
