...the ramblings of a lacquer-crazed grad student.
I love this!! Is there a tutorial?
I didn't do a tutorial for it, but I can try to explain it. :) I started with a basic purple gradient: (start with the lightest color and paint the entire nail. Let dry. Then, using a small piece of paper towel or sponge, blot the middle color from the tip down about 2/3 of your nail. Let dry. Then, for the darkest color, blot polish over only the top 1/3 of your nail.) For the stripes, I just used one of those nail art polishes with the long skinny brush, and painted random lines from side to side, making sure to stagger them and give them different sizes and lengths. Top it all off with some quick dry top coat and you're set! I hope that explanation helps! And thanks for reading!
