Copy-Caturday! Sarah's French Tip Gradient

It's Saturday, er I mean Copy-Caturday again!!!

Tonight I'm copy-catting another manicure from Sarah at Chalkboard Nails - French Tip Gradient. I adore gradients and haven't had much luck getting them to look smooth but I actually think I did better on this one! Practice is helping. Of course it's not as flawless as the original, but at least I'm improving.

To see Sarah's awesome French Tip Gradient, which was my inspiration, click here! I didn't use the same polishes because I am so pale and Shay is a little better on me, although I still haven't found my perfect manne hands polish.

I used Zoya Shay as the "mannequin hands" color as a base and then I used a make-up sponge with Shay and Milani White On The Spot for the gradient. One coat of Poshe top coat to finish it off.

Having a few cuticle issues because of the weather here and you can still see some sponge marks but I'm definitely happy with this attempt.
