Since the Olympics are over, I had to paint a new mani. And since it's summer, and it happened to be a busy weekend, I went for something simple. I made a blue gradient with TheNailasaurus technique. The colours shown are Ogre-the-Top Blue from OPI and You Belong to Me from Essence.
This nail was my favourite gradient.
So then a day later, I added stripes of Black Satin from Rimmel on my ring finger and thumb.
And here's a close up of the stripes over the gradient.
