red on blue gradient


20120423-131920.jpg

A little twist in the rainbow nails, this is simply a variation, instead if rainbow I’ve decided to go for a gradient instead!

The colours I used in this look are:

‘Heartbeat’ by 17, ‘Voodoo’ by BeautyUK, ‘Hot Gossip’ by Rimmel, ‘Double Decker Red’ by Rimmel, ”Shocker’ by Rimmel, ‘Strawberry Fizz’ by Rimmel, ‘Rose Libertine’ by Rimmel and ‘Strawberry I/C’ by Barry M.

So after using a base coat to protect your nails from staining i used 3 coats of heartbeat for the background colour. Once this was dry i started with the dotting tool applying each colour shade by shade onto the nail, on the ring finger is filled the whole nail with dots, on the other i just jest it with a simple stripe.

Due to the background being such a light colour i didn’t need to add white dots before hand to make the colours stand out more. This could be done with any colour gradient.

And that’s all there is to it. I hope you have fun recreating this look.
