This was the first time I tried painting a gradient on my nails. I was doubtful about the outcome when I first started, but it was surprisingly easy to do! The key point was to use nail polish that is thin, so that applying multiple layers with each subsequent layer covering a smaller surface area would create the effect of a gradient. I only had a few thin nail polish colours, which was the pink I used in here, and a blue one that I dipped at the tips of my fingers. The blue created a purple sheen to it, which surprised me until I ashamedly reminded myself that duh, colour theory. Must be the fumes from those polishes.
It’s also been a while since I had the luxury to make some pixelation. It is my favourite hobby, albeit one that occurs rarely.
Speaking of ‘a while’, I finally created an Instagram account last week! Am still trying to figure out what I should do with it- so far it’s merely a regurgitation of photos that have appeared (or will appear) at the blog here. I’m not too keen on social media, as any of you following my mostly-stagnantÂ Pinterest or Twitter can vouch for, though Tumblr and InstagramÂ managed to maintain my interest after I’ve given them a whirl, so we’ll see how things go I guess.
