#TheLacquerRing: Brown & #31DC2015: Gradient

Remember yesterday when I told you I was going to combine prompts today. Well I did. I combined #TheLacquerRing which was a color prompt, Brown (thank you Cynthia!) and today's #31DC2015 prompt of gradients. I knew the colors I wanted to use but had several disasticures trying to get this together. I'm not kidding. This is the third iteration of the look and strangely the one I like the most. 

For this look I used four different Zoya Polishes from light to dark they are Taylor, Spencer, Chanelle, and Emilia. I was going for a brush-stroke gradient so I just brushed each color on a little lower than the next, it was super easy and quite a fun look. 




Since I can't leave things alone, I decided to add some stamping on top with another brown polish. The stamping was done with MoYou London Fashionista Plate 04 and Mundo de Unas Chocolate. 




I love how the stamping kind of fades as the brown polishes get darker. Tomorrow the #31DC2015 moves to style prompts. It's a new frontier!!


Enjoy & until next time, Amy Lee

  6. I don't really like brown pplish, but this is a cool look! The gradient reminds me how soil looks when you dig really deep.
