Hi guys!! Today I have some nail art for you, black arrows over gradient nails. I wanted to make this gradient ever since I swatched the Cirque Colors Fall 2016 Metropolis Collection. I’ve seen the shades together and they looked perfect. So now, long overdue, I present you the gradient. I added the arrows to make the whole thing pop. Now let’s check how I made these.
I started with two layers of Cirque Colors – Dakota*. Then I applied Kaleidoscope – Cuticle Defender on my skin around nails, to protect it from getting all dirty. I waited till it was dry and then I started with the sponging of the gradient, which was made with Dakota, Cirque Colors – Fast Fashion* and Cirque Colors – Bond St*. I applied the gradient in three layers and then I sealed it with the fast drying top coat. And at that point I also removed the Cuticle Defender and cleaned everything up.
After that I waited for about twenty minutes, so the mani was fairly dry and then I applied on all of my nails What’s Up Nails Arrows Stencils* and painted them with the black polish Cirque Colors – Memento Mori. Because I didn’t want to smudge the black polish, I topped of the mani with MoYou London – Top Coat and then sealed it with one more layer of fast drying top coat. So lots of coats there.
What do you think of my black arrows over gradient nails guys? Let me know in the comments bellow.
Thank you for stopping by and see you in the next post. xoxo
