Now that this song is good and stuck in my head!! Yes this is another Ombre/Gradient nail but with Christmas Trees!!!!!! I can’t help myself, I love how it looks, this is far from the last gradient. >:)
I was going to go have my nails done, since I have a broken one on each hand. (The broken ring finger is much more noticeable than the broken pinky.) I changed my mind, and went ahead and changed my polish. I don’t really want to damage my nail beds more just to help the wee ones to grow back out. I also felt like I should show that even people with really short nails can do the gradients!
I used two of the oldest green nail polishes I own, I can’t even tell you how old they are… that’s how old!!! I blended them into Illamasqua Monogamous. It does make it a little harder to see the stars on my trees, but had I painted them on it wouldn’t have mattered, but I didn’t. I cheated and used holo stars! I also went with a random assortment of other colors to use as tree decorations.
This is super easy to do… it could be done with a toothpick if you don’t have a striper or dotting tool. I painted slightly curved downward lines, and dotted colors between the lines.
