Vertical Gradient with Illamasqua

Gradients are still up there with my favourite nail art techniques! I love doing them and seeing other people do them. I'm quite jealous of the people who manage to blend them SO seamlessly that it doesn't even look real! Practice makes perfect though and I think I've come quite a long way with mine (I may do a then and now post soon!) 

I decided to do a vertical gradient this time as it's something I've never done before. I started with a base of Illamasqua Jan, a dusty pink creme (now sadly discontinued) and sponged on some vertical stripes of Illamasqua Nomad, a minty green creme. I finished with a top coat to smooth it all together.



  1. Oh this is pretty! You've done a good job of blending two very different colours

  2. Very pretty. Your ring finger is perfect. Honestly, they all look fab.

    1. I thought my ring finger was the best too! Haha

  3. This is wonderful, you've done such a great job! And with such gorgeous colours.
    I once tried to do a vertical gradient rainbow...nope, just no, lol, it was terrible :/

  4. very pretty, I love how it has really nicely transitioned! :D

  5. It´s beautiful! I´ve tried to make this manicure for some times but I´m probably totally left-manded :D

  6. Love your gradient, but Jan is discontinued? My first love and polish from Illamasqua! Too sad!!!

  7. Great job :) I love putting the top coat on and seeing it transformed! xx

  8. These came out perfect and I love the color combination!

  9. i love that you did a vertical gradient!
