Dazzle Dry Gradient

Reciprocal Or Double Gradient?

Wednesday, June 19, 2013Nail A College Drop Out


Press Sample I've been seeing reciprocal gradients all over my Tumblr and Instgram feeds so I finally decided to give one a whirl! Only I'm not quite sure it can be considered reciprocal if I use two completely different sets of colors.


I started with a base gradient of Priti NYC City Girl Rose and Priti Hedge Hog Rose. To speed up the drying process a added a layer of Dazzle Dry Top Coat. Then, I laid down some striping tape and made a gradient of Priti NYC Baby Blue Eyes and Priti NYC Scotch Thistle. After I felt the color built up to a nice opacity, I removed the tape and added an additional layer of top coat.

Front to Back: City Girl Rose, Hedge Hog Rose, Baby Blue Eyes, and Scotch Thistle

My favorite nail polish finish is creme so I was intrigued by this collection at first sight. Other than that, my immediate impression was that I would like Scotch Thistle the most. Don't get me wrong, Scotch Thistle is great. But, City Girl Rose is such a vibrant mid-orange creme.

Before I forget, Baby Blue Eyes has a super slight shimmer. It is barely noticeable but it is there.

All of these shades are part of the Priti NYC Bahamas Summer Kit currently on sale for $35.99 on PritiNYC.com.

Have you tried this technique yet?
Tune in. Drop out. Love polish.
