Cattails at Sunset

Hey guys! Well today I recreated this wonderful design by Chalkboard Nails. She did this perfect gradient recreating a sky at sunset and added these cattails. Well I think I didn’t quite well….. It sucks a bit. It isn’t that bad but I couldn’t get the transition of the colors right, the gradient effect. I can never get gradients right.

As you can see I’m not the best at gradients. I don’t know what I do wrong but they just look messy and I can’t really achieve that gradient effect. I guess I’ll have to practisse my sponging skills. Do you know any tricks or tips for a perfect gradient? It would sure help me a lot.

These are the colors I used for this design:


I also used my new nail art brushes from Bangood which you can find here at a really good price.


Well I hope you like this recreation of Chalkboard Nails design. If you don’t know her check her blog she’s an amazing artist. Don’t be to harsh on me. Don’t forget to share, like and comment if you have any questions. Happy polishing lovelies!
