Nail Art Challenge: Gradient

I've been trying hard for weeks now to figure out a cute simply gradient design. I have to say I'm not good at gradient designs I've never been good at blending the colors together on my nails I can do it on my eyes easy just not nails. So I was online yesterday and saw a tutorial that sokolum79 did on YouTube and thought it was so cute and unique. It was a nail tutorial inspired by the nail art  Emma Watson was wearing in Elle UK 2011. The best thing about this nail design is you only need two colors a dark color and a light one, and it's a very simply and cool look. It also gave me a chance to try out my new polish Revlon's Lilac Pastelle,which I love now.
Products Used: Sinful Colors-Let's Talk, Revlon Lilac Pastelle
                           This manicure to me is hypnotizing I can't help but stare at my nails.

Quick Update

To start off Merry Christmas everyone. So this week has not been filled with holiday cheer for me sadly. My house was robbed, luckily no one was home so we didn't get hurt and most of the items taken can be replaced. But I was so sad to see my camera case was stolen which held my camera,batteries, and SD cards. I know that stuff can be replaced but sadly the pictures on the SD cards can't be replaced which sucks. So now I can't make YouTube videos or take a lot of pictures for awhile tell I save up for a new camera. That's of course after I buy my sister a new Wii since the robbery was mostly my fault. But I can still take pictures on my phone I'm not sure about videos yet. So the pictures I'll be posting might be a little blurry because my phone takes really bad pictures. But hopefully all of you had a better week.
