geo-gradient

Hey everyone!
Today I'm going to show you a manicure which combines so many different techniques that I didn't know what to call it, so it became a Geo-Gradient.


It started off as a plain purple/periwinkle base. I felt it was a bit plain, so I decided to do a gradient using black and white, but at the same time I wanted to do sort of a triangle pattern. I made the pattern using self adhesive striping tape and sponged black and white gradient on top. After a few coats, I removed the striping tape and applied a layer of top coat. The final step was adding a few golden triangles as accent.

Used products:
• Kleancolor Signature Lavender (purple)
• Golden Rose Color Expert 02 (white)
• Golden Rose Color Expert 60 (black)

I got the golden metallic triangle decorations from BornPrettyStore as a product for review. They are really thin and tiny and they remind me of aluminum foil which we use for food. They can be bent to the shape of your nail which is always a plus when it comes to nail decorations, especially geometric ones, because no one wants their clothes or hair to get stuck on them. The triangles are very thin which means that you can easily cover them with a coat or two of a clear top coat for a longer wear. The "outline" type decorations like these are a bit more fragile than full ones, but if you're being careful while handling them, you won't have any problems.

Lastly, I'll show you this awesome nail polish that I bought recently. It's called Kleancolor Signature Lavender and it's from one of the latest Kleancolor nail polishes that are scented. It's a periwinkle purple creme, opaque in a single coat. It's a bit thicker in consistency, but surprisingly dries pretty fast. I was a bit skeptical when it comes to the scent, but it actually smells really good. The scent fades after a day or so, but it is pretty intense, especially a few minutes after application :)




Thanks for reading!
Some of the products were sent to me for review. However, my opinion will always be 100% honest.
