NOTW – Pink and Black Gradient

by - January 21, 2013

Brrr it is so cold here today. -38  ̊C with the windchill. It is no different in Fahrenheit. It is stinkin’ hell froze over cold out there today! LOL

I don’t venture out to much in this weather. Work, grocery store, home and that’s basically it.

So I have had some time to play with my polishes. I did this mani last week. It is a pink and black gradient. I got my inspiration from Sokolum79. She did it in reverse - black as the base and pink on the tips. I just changed it up. 

Products used:

  • OPI You’re Web or Mine? (frosty pink) used as a base
  • Cult Nails Nevermore  (black crème) sponge on tips of nails
  • Orly Bonder basecoat
  • Nubar Diamont topcoat


I am determined to get the prefect gradient nail down. It looks so easy but can end up a big blotchy mess :/ I am happy with my latest attempt. I am getting better.
I got some dotting tools now so watch out for some dotmania happening soon... haha
