My design today was inspired by these nails by More Nail Polish(who was inspired by other blogger, who were inspired by other bloggers :P). I decided that since I had these black circular rhinestones from KKCenterHk's Candy Series I would do it in reverse. Black on rainbow!
I'm honestly pretty bad at gradients and rarely do them. This is maybe my 4rd attempt. I painted all the colours(Red, yellow, green, blue, and purple) on a makeup sponge and dabbed it against my nails which already had white polish on them. It was MUCH easier then I the past few times I did it. And although it's not perfect I still think it looks good. The only thing I would do differently next time is do the colours in reverse so the red isn't near the cuticles. It was flippin hard to clean!
Then I easily placed the solid black rhinestones. They are 2mm in diameter and they say they include around 100 rhinestones. If I were to take a guess I would say there was well over 100 in the bottle it came in. I used 20 and you would never know I used any if looking in the container. My only "problem"(and reason I only did the row of black as an accent nails) was it's really hard too see what side was the top or thw bottom when you were picking them up. The colours in the Candy Series are solid colours unlike their other rhinestones, which are transparent, and have silver bottoms, making the bottom easy to identify. It also probably doesn't help that my eyes are bad.
Overall I really did love these rhinestones! If you want some head on over to KKCenterHK they also come in MANY other colours. They retail for $4.50 USD, but you can use our 15% coupon code 'varnishedvalkyrieevent15off' and get them for a bit less :D
What do you think of my gradient?
You have to look close to see if you are picking it up from the top or the bottom.
