Good afternoon, readers! Day 3 of Gradient + Week with The Digit-al Dozen is upon us and this is my favorite look so far this week! (Kind of wishing I had done these ahead of time, I would have enjoyed wearing this mani for longer than one day.) I have these Salon Perfect Neon POP! Collection colors sitting on my desk after yesterday’s delivery and I loved how three looked side by side, so I grabbed them for this gradient. Sloteazzy collaborated with Bundle Monster and helped design a stamping plate full of watermarble designs–it takes the mess out of watermarbling and looks just as cool! I ordered it a while ago and am finally trying it out. The spiral design was perfect to stamp over the radial gradient! Let’s take a look.

  • To begin, I painted a base of Salon Perfect Sugar Cube white creme on my nails. A coat of  Salon Perfect Crystal Clear top coat was used to seal in the white and help with drying time.
  • While it was drying, I painted Liquid Palisade around my nails.
  • For the gradient, I made a dot in the middle of a makeup sponge with Salon Perfect Mer-made of Money. Then, I used Salon Perfect Violets are Blue to paint a circle around the dot.  Lastly, I painted a circle around the two others with Salon Perfect Purple POP!
  • While the sponge was still wet, I lined it up on the center of the nails and dabbed, repainting and repeating until I was happy with the coverage.
  • Once the gradient was dry, I used Mundo de Uñas Black stamping polish, the spiral watermarble design from Bundle Monster BM-XL210 plate, and my XL clear stamper from ÜberChic to line up the image centered on the nail and radial gradient.
  • I used tweezers to peel up the Liquid Palisade and a cleanup brush with remover to get any leftover polish off of the skin.
  • I sealed everything in with a coat of NYC Grand Central Station quick dry top coat and then a coat of KBShimmer Oh Matte! to remove the shine.

What do you think? I am super in love with this mani, and the design makes my short nails look longer!

Salon Perfect polishes are available at Walmart stores for $3.98 each and the Neon POP! Collection will be in a promo display until August.
