Today is day 2 of the Lazy 15 Challenge and it calls for a gradient design.
I actually enjoy doing gradients, it can refresh a tired looking mani really quickly and the colour choices are endless. However, for me that's the problem; I can never decide on a combo!
I originally had one ready for today from a couple of weeks ago but I wasn't entirely happy with my colours so I did another this morning. I think these shades are much more fitting for the autumny/flipping freezing weather we're having at the minute.
I used OPI Every Month is Oktoberfest and Essie Lollipop.
For me, the one bad thing about today's mani was that I couldn't get the application I really wanted due to my lack of appropriate tools! I usually use eyeshadow applicators for gradients as I find it sooo much easier, but I ran out and had to use a piece of sponge which took me a lot longer to get a decent effect. I know you should never blame your tools but I am, so there.
Overall though I'm pretty happy with today's mani and I can't wait to see what the rest of the peeps have come up with!
