Simple 70s Gradient

There is something quite beautiful about a simple, two color gradient. I will rock crazy nail art like nobody's business, but sometimes you just want something clean and pretty.

The other day I asked Sean to pick two colors for me so I could make a gradient out of them. He picked green and brown. Initially I felt kind of apathetic about the choices, but I had told him that I would do whatever he chose so I had to follow through with it. As I began sponging together my colors, I realized that they went beautifully together. The combination was a little out of my wheelhouse because I usually go for the pastels or brights. I was surprised to find that this earthy, 70's combination was really working for me.

OPI - Jade Is the New Black (green)

  45. I usually do not drop a comment, however I read a few of the
    comments on "Simple 70s Gradient". I do have 2 questions for you if
    you do not mind. Is it just me or does it give the impression
    like some of these responses come across like they are coming from brain dead people?
    :-P And, if you are posting at other places, I'd like to keep up with everything new you have to post. Would you post a list of the complete urls of your social sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
