There will be a bunch of posts coming up that are labelled “From the archives” because they’re all designs from 2015 and 2016 I never posted to the blog, though may have posted to social media. This is the first of those.
This is from June 2015, a pink gradient done with two Essie polishes – “Madison Ave-hue” and “Pink About It”.
I do recall that I did these over a white base, and both polishes used (the dark and light pink) were not very opaque, and it took quite a few layers with the sponge to get the gradient I wanted. As you can see, that dark pink has a bit of shimmer to it.
Here is the other polish used, also with some shimmer, though a lot more subtle. To add a bit of interest, I dotted on some more white, and then dotted on with silver and red.
