Raiding My Drafts: Blushing Peach Gradient


Sometimes I do a manicure and upload it to my drafts, but then something happens and it never gets published. Either I have too many other things to post and then too much time passes, or I fall out of love with the look, or some weird Twilight Zone stuff happens and I basically forget that it's in there. I have been busy with behind the scenes blog stuff lately, so I thought it would be fun to raid my post drafts for a new look to share with you today.

This blushing peach gradient was a reject from the 31 Day Challenge; I ended up posting leather gradient nail art instead. Seeing this look now though, I find it quite pretty, and great for the ever-warming Arizona springtime.


The two polishes used in this look are:
OPI If You Moust, You Moust
Lime Crime Crema de Limon

This is the first horizontal gradient that I've done, I think. It was a little trickier than the typical vertical gradient but not unmanageable.


The weather has been so pleasant here lately... I almost want to recreate this look to celebrate the pleasantness before it gets hotter than the devil's armpit.

  6. Sarah, this is a little blast from the past with your old square nail shape! I'm enjoying your new roundies but must admit I prefer squares or squovals on myself. Thanks for your artistic inspiration as always!

  7. Haha I agree, it's so strange to see them squared now! I am torn on which way I prefer them, but right now I think I am leaning a bit towards preferring the round. <3

  21. Wait. Isn't this a vertical gradient, not a horizontal one? Whatever it's called, it's still pretty freaking gorgeous!

    ReplyDelete
  22. My reasoning is that the colors blend horizontally across the nail... I can see the other argument too though!

  26. (and yes by the facts this is a horizontal gradient since that the way he polishes are "going" even if the create a vertical "gap", haha. :) )

  27. These look gorgeous -- I love the combination of peach and pink! Crema de Limon is beautiful :)
