Copy-Caturday! With Globe and Nail's Reciprocal Gradient

Happy Saturday! Time for Copy-Caturday again - my attempt at copying some great nail art I've seen that inspired me to keep trying.

Today I'm copying a great gradient I saw over at Globe and Nail. She calls it a reciprocal gradient and went into a "math" explanation about why, which made my brain shut down immediately. But I know I was enthralled with the look of it.

I did something similar the other day - a sideways reciprocal gradient using browns and when I found out what to call it is when I found Globe and Nail's awesome mani. Go check it out!

Not the best, but I'm pretty happy with it for now. I will be practicing more though because I think this is just such a cool look! What do you think? Will you be trying it?

Click here for Globe and Nail's tutorial. I hadn't seen the tutorial until after I did this one so next time I will use more than three per nail and I'll get them straighter.

Happy Weekend!
