Another gradient


I hope you guys aren't tired of the gradients...I did another one using OPI's Tickle My France-y and for tips I used Color Club's Blue-Ming. I was asked by two others on Instagram (one was Minette from I Learn With Minette on YouTube! Go check out her channel!) and one on my blog (Alisha, an amazing person I met via Instagram) to do a gradient tutorial. I've seen really great tutorials on this technique online so I'm a bit hesitant to make my own, but for you guys, I will try! I was debating on doing posts with pictures or a short video. I did want to do more YouTube videos since my channel hasn't had much action, but I need to find time to do them...or maybe I'm spending too much time than I need to on them...? I've seen a few fellow bloggers on here with awesome YouTube channels and it's so inspiring! Have any of you without YouTube channels ever thought of starting one? Or for those with YouTube channels, what inspired you to start?


I hope you guys like this mani and I hope you have a great rest of the day! :D

  9. Your gradients are always different so I don't find them tiring at all. Always gorgeous, as well! I love this blue and I think the contrast between it and your bare nail is beautiful.
    I always find bloggers with YouTube channels inspiring too, though I don't see myself doing it. However, I think it'd be so fun to watch how you do your nails!
    Usually we just see the end result, so I think to see the process too would be interesting. (:

  10. Not tired at all. They are so good and you always have great ideas. I really like this one because I have been into blue (hence my blog colors! lol) I need to try this out but I never have those make up sponges!

    1. Aw I'm glad you're not tired of them :) Haha oh yea! I love the colors on your blog! omg you should get some! They're really cheap! I think there was a pack of 50 (not that you need that many lol) at Target for maybe $2? I can't remember...

  11. And you should do a channel I think you would do great. There is a girl on Beautylish, something like Jatna or something she did the outline nails and some nude nail with a feather and I like her videos because she gets straight to the point! I think you should try it out. :)

  14. I have never been tempted to start a YouTube channel. I don't know where I'd find the time, for one, and I don't know who would watch--I myself watch very few beauty videos. For tutorials, I like still photos so I can follow along at my own pace. I know a lot of people do watch; it's just not my thing. :)

    1. Yea, it seems very time consuming...blogging for me takes a lot of time out of my days too, but I do enjoy it. Hmm that makes sense. I think for that reason, I do like photo tutorials :D
