Frozen Blue Grapes Gradient

Hi guys! It's Nail Art Sunday today. I haven't participated in months! I can't even remember the last time I joined in. I thought it was time today. I slapped on some polish and did a gradient. 
The polish I've used are OPI Alpine Snow, OPI Pirouette My Whistle and Barry M Blue Grape. 

I started off with a white base and sponged on Blue Grape. Then I added some glitter to hide some imperfections. Glitter is great for that. 
I think the gradient turned out good. It's not great but it's the first gradient I've done in about a year. I love gradients but I hate doing them because of the clean up. I never clean up my manicures or swatches. I don't even own a clean up brush! I found an old make up brush in a drawer and cleaned up this mani. I really like the result but I might be too winter-y. I'm definitely going to do this again closer to winter. 

What you see in the pictures are two coats of OPI Alpine Snow, one coat of Barry M Blue Grape sponged on to the tips, one coat of OPI Pirouette My Whistle and one coat of Pretty Serious Crystal Coat.


  1. Sååå tjusigt och vackert. Underbar gradient. :-)

  2. It looks pretty and indeed very winter-like. :) I always use a peel-off base to avoid the mess of cleaning up stamping/gradients/...

  3. Väldigt fint! :P Gör man en gradient på "wet on dry" i stället för "wet and wet" så blir det ingen till minimal rengöring! :D Olika lack passar till de olika men resultatet kan bli lika bra :D

  4. Jättefint! Fick också en lite vintrig känsla, men vintern är ju inte så långt bort nu så det gör nog inget ;)

  5. Välkommen tillbaka!:) vilka vinterkänslor jag fick. Nysnö som krasar under fötterna och varm choklad i soffan när snön faller utanför, härligt.

  6. Åh, PMW är så fint och passar perfekt här! Och visst kan det bli vinter, is och kyla associationer, men mitt i poppar en bounty-strand upp i mitt huvud. En grekisk bounty-strand en ljus, månklar natt:) Jag hade lätt kunnat ha en liknande manikyr på sommaren också

  7. Åh den här manikyren gillar jag, en solig och fin vinterdag när skaren på snön gnistrar :)


I love comments! They make me happy. I will answer comments, questions and feedback as soon as possible. :)
