Feeling Autumn colours with Pretty Serious

Quick post tonight.

Here is a mani wore earlier this week.  When I saw Pretty Serious' VT100 and Morning Java next to each other, I could see that they both had the exact same gorgeous golden shimmer.  

Gradient nails are all the rage now cause of The Nailsaurus's excellent tutorial, I thought I would give one a go.  My gradient's in the past have been less than stellar. In fact, they have been pretty bloody awful. Therefore I was exceptionally happy with how this turned out. My aim was to represent the last of the fading autumn for those of us in the southern hemisphere, with green changing to brown.

Not perfect, but my best gradient so far.

That's all for today.


  1. Gradient nails have been popular for a while. xD I remember doing them years ago cos they were popular in asian fashion.

  2. Lovely gradient! I think you captured the fading in autumn perfectly.

  3. this looks perfect! Great job :D

  4. The gradient looks great with the matching gold shimmer in each! :)

  5. this gradient rocks!! perfect in my eyes!!

  6. I think it looks pretty awesome! My immediate reaction was "Oooooooo!!!" and then I wrote this idea down on my to-do list! lol

  7. Wow, I have never seen such a smooth gradient with glitters before--beautiful job!

  8. Wow, this is beautiful! I think you did a great job :)
