Nail Crazies Unite: Neutral Colors

Neutral Colors is the first prompt for the next round of the Nail Crazies Unite nail art challenge.

I started with two coats of OPI Taupe-less On The Beach, a light taupe creme. Then I used OPI I Sao Paolo Over There, a darker taupe creme, and the gradient nail art brush I was offered by Born Pretty Store, thank you so much! It has a lot of short bristles and some longer ones, to create a gradient. I'm sure you'll get a pretty smooth gradient using this brush on a wet base, but I was aiming for a rougher, more home-spun look, so I let the base completely dry, put some of the darker polish on my nail art mat and picked it up with the gradient brush. Then I simply painted it on my nail tips, dragging the bruth towards my cuticles. I only used very little polish, for a even rougher finish. If you're looking for a clean way to create a gradient, without the mess a sponged gradient can produce, this brush might be what you're looking for. You can get the brush here for 1.59$, it comes in two colors, red or green (I got the green one, obviously).

Then I stamped on a swirly pattern using MoYou  London Café au Lait and Moyra stamping plate 03 - ornaments. As usual, I added one coat of KBShimmer Clearly On Top.

The nail art brush was offered for reviewing purposes. Again, thank you very much, Born Pretty Store!
