So here's what i came up with, a gradient, starting with Barry M Berry Ice Cream. (one of my all time favorite colors btw) then using the sponging technique i added a layer of some random mid range purple and finished it all off with a layer of Sally Hensen 08 Deep Purple.
Then I did a little stamping with konad plate m57.
My nails were looking very layered, and I just couldn't stand to have a gradient, leopard print stamping, and super glossy nails... so i matteified? mattyfied? MATTIEFIED it!
i love the results! (and i don't even like leopard print O_o)
Berry Ice Cream
white dots from the matte topcoat, eventually went away
index finger is an odd shape due to a freak x-acto knife accident at work...
