Blue Tides Gradient

Hi guys! Before I talk about today's post I just want to give you all a HUGE thank you!!!! Yesterday night I made it to 50 followers! Then, this morning I got another follower. You guys are so cool :) haha. Really though, writing and being able to share my passion with you is one thing, but when you guys respond to it and comment and tell me how much you like it, it makes me feel so good! Starting this blog, I wasn't looking for a bunch of followers, of course I hoped I would get some followers, but that's not what I set out to do. I simply posted about the things I loved and wanted to share with you guys. I wanted to share things with people in hopes they would share in my excitement! So, thank you all (new & old followers) for taking this journey with me. I hope it lasts a long time, because you all are wonderful and I want to spend as much time with you as I can! :)

Okie dokie, now, onto the nails! Gradients. Whoo, we've all seen 'em by now, I hope. Nevertheless, I still somehow completely adore them. In my last gradient I said I was kind of tired of them, but after my break I've fallen back in love with them. I hope you guys don't get too mad at me for posting a gradient every week!

Today I have a pretty blue one. Instead of sponging this onto a blue nail polish base, I did it directly onto my bare nail. It would've been okay, but the gradient was a little sheer and I didn't like that so much, so I kept getting more polish and sponging. At some point I don't think I had enough polish on my sponge because it kind of crapped up my lightest color by my cuticles. Oh well, I still think the colors are really pretty and I would definitely do it again because blue is my favorite color (fun fact there haha). So, I used the same technique as always, you can too with my gradient tutorial, although one of these days I'm definitely going to have to try Sammy's, as everyone's been raving about it!

I have no idea why the picture quality is so sucky in these pictures, sorry about that!

Colors Usued: (light to dark/cuticle to tip) Light blue franken, NYC In a New York Minute - Water Street Blue, CHI - Midnight Rendezvous, NYC In a New York Minute - TC.

Hope you guys like this!
