Gradient with stamping

It seems like I can never get to posting anything on the weekends. I will try to work on that after finals are over. I have 2 more finals this week then I'm done! WOO HOO!

Anyway, I LOVED my galaxy nails but all good things have to end sometime (And I really needed a fill). So I came up with something fun and I think it turned out pretty well.

For this mani I used 2 coats of Ulta Mint Condition then created the gradient look using Mint Condition and Ulta Plum Perfect. I was really happy with the application of both colors, not too watery and not too thick. I was also surprised at how good the coverage was on them since they are lighter colors. I will start investing in more Ulta polish, for sure! I added the dots using stamping plate CH6 from Cheeky and Revlon Impulsive. It looked good but it was really light, I thought Impulsive would show up better but I guess its too close to Plum Perfect. I decided adding some pink dots would look good so I used OPI Kiss Me On My Tulips and did a double stamp. I wasn't trying to match up the two stamps but some of them ended up that way anyway. I followed with 2 coats of some random off brand quick dry top coat. I wish I had been more careful with the second layer of stamping but I think it looks pretty cool!



What do you think of this gradient?
