Late Nite Summer Challenge Post - Beach Towels
I struggled with what to do for this design, there are so many different things that can be done with today's theme and the ideas were overwhelming. I finally decided to try a gradient design, I usually fail miserably at them and wanted to push myself a bit. I ended up using the tutorial by Sammy at the Nailasaurs which can be found here. I had tried this method once before and failed, I'm not sure what I did wrong but this one turned out better than I expected! I started with a base of white and used Sinful Colors Fusion Neon (pink) and Why Not (blue) for the gradient. The accent nail is China Glaze Kinetic Candy stamped in a stripe pattern (Cheeky CH6) with China Glaze Aqua Baby and then the seahorse design from with plate m27 (fake Konad). The flip flop design is from the new Bundle Monster set and is plate BM-309. Overall I'm pleased with how they turned out. Don't forget to check out the others!!
