Copper Shimmer Gradient

Hello readers!  A quick post today.  I have found the perfect neutral polishes for my skin tone!  Finger Paints Whatta Dish and Bare No Secrets.  They are very similar  but Whatta Dish has a very soft shimmer while Bare No Secrets has shimmer plus some more pronounced sparkles.  I used both of them along with Orly Ingenue to make a soft shimmery copper gradient.

It's not perfect but honestly, I don't have time for dabbing sponges or blending polishes into  perfect gradient and then transferring it to my nail.  I did this quickly just using the polish bottle brushes.  I think it's still rather pretty though and the shimmer is amazing.  I love the purple undertones from Orly Ingenue too! 

What do you think of this look?  Are you willing to put up with a not quite perfect gradient to save some time?

  1. I've tried to do gradients like this and they always end up terrible! Yours looks good though, I like it.
