Autumn Week - Gradient

Hi everyone!

Today is the 4th day (yes 4th day already...its going so fast!) of Autumn Week. I'm really enjoying all these manis and today I decided to go for something a bit more simple.

I actually ended up LOVING this mani despite the simplicity.

I started out by doing a gradient using OPI DS Luxurious and DS Glow. These two were just begging to be paired together! I did the gradient by applying two coats of DS Luxurious then sponging DS Glow onto the tips of my nails.

Formula and application of these two polishes was outstanding, just as I expect from OPI.  

I actually had other ideas for the nail art but I ended up loving the gradient so much that I didn't want to cover it up very much. I painted some freehand leaf and swirly branch silhouettes onto the sides of two of my nails using black acrylic paint and my fine detail brush.

I actually think this might be my favourite gradient ever!  

What do you think of this mani? Do you like to do gradients?
