Red Gradation

This is a gradation I tried using Orly Quintessential Crimson and my gradation liquid.  I sort of messed up the pinkie and thumb, but I think these three came out pretty well.  I used my gradation liquid for this despite the warning that it didn’t work well with dark colors.  The manufacturer recommends light pearly pastels, but I want to do darks and crazy stuff!


Today, I can’t get too crazy with the nails, but I’m going to do something fun with it after work- I’ll post pics of it if it turns out well!

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.

      Hi Puspha,
      I got mine at Champe De Herbe, a makeup store in Ueno Station Atre. A lot of the little cosmetics shops in train stations sell it.

      Hi there,
      I use a Japanese brand called D-Nails Gradation Liquid. I don’t think it’s available outside of Japan, but I have heard that it shows up on occasionally.
