Hey, everyone! This is a cute little mani inspired by a wonderful monthly palette project on a secret Facebook nail group I am part of. The colour inspiration picture is beautiful, and using such vibrant colours together really pushed me out of my usual comfort zone. First off, here’s the inspiration source:
My mani had to use at least two colours of a similar hue as the tones shown above, and it could also include black or white if I was stuck on finding these colours. I chose to use several of the tones, since this month’s palette-inspired look had to feature gradients. I used two of Maybelline’s denim-look polishes to create a very subtle blue gradient, and I also chose to clash a terracotta tone by e.l.f. with the beautiful A-England Galahad. I teamed my three gradient nails with a gorgeous Lord of the Rings-inspired creation by NerdLacquer called TDBSLICHSHITD, which seemed like a perfect way to get some nature-inspired greens into the mani. Not content with all that, I decided to fade some teal and blue glitter polish by Salon Perfect on top of the clashing gradient for added glitz. Here’s a shot with outdoor lighting:
What do you think? I was pretty pleased with the overall look, but I decided I needed some more neutral indoor shots to really show off those gradients a little better:
I think this mani has really helped me to appreciate more interesting colour clashes, so perhaps I’ll be a little more adventurous in future! You can follow the public wing of World of Nailcraft, the wonderful nail group I mentioned, to see more manis from much more talented people than I! Feel free to try out this colour palette yourself and link your creation in the comments – I’d love to see it!
