I really wanted to do a candy corn looking type of gradient using the sand/texture polishes, but other than OPI Solitaire, which is a different consistency than the other ones I wanted to use, I realized I don't have another white sand/texture polish. Barry M Lady would be perfect (and I ironically got it in the mail from a fabulous lady in a Halloween exchange a couple days after I did this), so I had to improvise using the polishes I had on hand.
Started with a base of Zoya Solange, two coats, no topcoat. I didn't realize how bright Solange is....you need to wear sunglasses to look at it!
For the gradient, added Julie G Tangerine Dream. (Sorry, I didn't do any cleanup here as I knew I'd be doing more layering and just didn't want to take the time to do the cleanups in between).
Sponged on Julie G Hot Cinnamon. It was around this time that I realized that I did the gradient in the wrong order on four of my fingers (well, not wrong per se but not in the way I had intended as I wanted the dark at the tips and light at the cuticles). But it was late and I wasn't doing it over again so just worked with it!
Stamped using charcoal FUN stamping polish using HD04 on all fingers except ring; ring finger is MJ XIII.
Topped with SV to finish.
I may try the candy corn gradient again if I have time using Barry M Lady as the white part.....so many Halloween mani ideas and not much time though!.....and if I do, I hope I get the order of the gradient right!
Hope you're having a great week....thanks for looking!
