I filed down my nails recently as I had a complete break on my middle finger. I don't even know how I did it. I was just going about my day and looked down and my nail was missing. I didn't file my nails down as short as the middle finger as that is just too short for my liking.
I have been wanting to try a gradient manicure using a sponging technique that I saw on The Nailasaurus Blog. Seriously check out some of her gradients, and other nail art for that matter. She's awesome! They are perfect which is why I was inspired to try it. I think mine turned out okay. I kind of wish the colors I picked were a bit more contrasting. I had used two of the colors out of the Zoya Pinterest Trio that I got for free...just paid shipping. Not a bad deal! The colors I used were Myrta and Kimber. I don't know how Zoya has those names but they don't have an Amy!!! I almost didn't post this as I really struggled with cleanup on this. Sponging is a bit messy and my cuticles are a little dry so it made it hard to remove some of the polish. I figure if I put this as a post in my blog and I do another one at a later time it will be nice to see if I improve! :)
Thanks for stopping by to look. Hope you have a good week!
