One hell of a gradient

Today I'm showing you one super duper manicure. :) Let's face it, it's one little gradient and that's all! Simple as that! But I can't help being totally surprised how it turned up. Forgive me for that but I'm not good with gradients. They just aren't working the way I would want them to. Till now I did a dozen of gradient manicure but this is only the second that looks absolutely the way I planned.

Danas ću vam pokazati jednu super duper manikuru. :) Da se razumijemo, to je samo jedan mali gradient i to je sve! Ne može biti jednostavnije! Ali jednostavno ne mogu ne biti iznenađena kako je ispalo. Oprostite mi zbog toga, ali ja inače nisam dobra u gradientima. Jednostavno mi ne idu onako kako bih ja to htjela. Do sada sam napravila desetak gradient manikura, a ovo je tek druga koja izgleda absolutno onako kako sam planirala.

I wasn't even planning on posting about this manicure because I was thinking about painting my nails with one nail polish that I haven't tried yet and I was really looking forward to see how it looks on my nails. I'm talking about Rimmel Lycra Pro 405 Fierce Cherry, a beautiful burgundy nail polish with a little bit of tiny red shimmer. Everything went well, Fierce Cherry covers the whole nail in two coats and looks absolutely gorgeous, elegant. If you consider buying this nail polish you should have in mind that Rimmel polishes have that big flat brush which is ok, but with this one I had a few problems. There was nail polish everywhere but I don't mind. That beautiful kind of nail polish can afford a problem brush. :)

Nisam čak ni planirala postati o ovoj manikuri jer sam mislila nalakirati nokte jednim lakićem koji još nisam isprobala i zbilja sam se veselila vidjeti kako će izgledati na mojim noktima. Govorim o Rimmel Lycra Pro 405 Fierce Cherry, predivnom bordo crvenom lakiću s malo sitnog crvenog shimmera. Sve je prošlo dobro, Fierce Cherry prekriva cijeli nokat u dva sloja i izgleda absolutno predivno, elegantno. Ako razumišljate o kupovini ovog lakića trebate znati da Rimmel lakići imaju onaj veliki plosnati kistić što je ok, no s ovim sam imala problema. Bilo je lakića posvuda, no nije me zasmetalo. Ovakav predivan lakić si može priuštiti problematičan kist. :)


After everything dried, I caught myself thinking how it would be nice to show the world all the beauty of this nail polish but publishing the post with one color manicure is just not my thing. :) So I started thinking what to do and it downed on me right away. A month or two ago I saw a review of a depended by the warmth and cold color changing nail polish. When it's warm, the color of the nail polish is dark red almost burgundy like this polish of mine and when it's cold, nail polish becomes black from the top of the nail creating beautiful black/red gradient. It looked amazing and ofcourse, I decided to create that kind of manicure with two regular nail polishes. To tell the truth, I don't think there's that kind of color changing nail polishes in our country available but I also don't think I need it. :) And just for the record: black polish that I used for this gradient is Eveline Colour Instant 192.

Nakon što se sve osušilo, uhvatila sam se razmišljajući kako bi bilo super pokazati svijetu svu ljepotu ovog lakića, ali objaviti post s jednobojnom manikurom jednostavno nije moj đir. :) Onda sam počela razmišljati što napraviti i odmah mi je sinulo. Prije mjesec ili dva sam vidjela recenziju lakića koji mijenja boju ovisno o toplini, odnosno hladnoći. Kada je toplo, boja lakića je tamno crvena skoro kao ovaj moj lakić, a kada je hladno, lakić postaje crn s vrha nokta kreirajući tako lijepi crno-crveni gradient. Izgledalo je predivno i naravno da sam odlučila napraviti takvu manikuru s dva obična lakića. Mislim da kod nas nema za kupiti takvih lakića koji mijenjaju boju, ali iskreno, mislim da mi ne trebaju. :) I samo informativno: crni lakić koji sam koristila za ovu mankuru je Eveline Colour Instant 192.



I just love this manicure! My boyfriend who really has no clue about nail polishes or any kind of nail art techinc was surprised too. He looked at my nails from every side and under different lights and he wasn't clear how the hell did I do that. So sweet! :)

Obožavam ovu manikuru! Moj dragi, koji stvarno nema pojma o lakićima niti bilo kakvim tehnikama nail arta je također bio iznenađen. Gledao je moje nokte sa svih strana i pod različitim svjetlom i nije mu bilo jasno kako sam to napravila. Slatko! :)
