Yay Friday! WNAC time! I like this :D
I'm loving this month's WNAC gradient theme so much! Which is so weird, because there was a long time where gradients and I were just not friendly - we just weren't. :( But now we are and all is right with the world. :D (It's so late and I shouldn't be doing this blog post right now but I am, yay!)
I feel like this gradient is one of the best ones I've ever done - and it's all thanks to the fact that I've been practicing - a LOT. You really can't get better just by watching videos - just use a clean makeup sponge, and practice - you'll have pretty gradients too!
|Why I only did 3 bottle shots of this gradient is beyond me but I really like this pic!|
I always forget to take a picture but I did use my trusty liquid latex to make clean up easy because let's face it - most of us don't do gradients because it's just a massive mess to clean up - am I right? I can't even without my liquid latex - it's just way too much work otherwise. I. Can't. Even. (See, I told you it was late :D)
|I'm a holo-addict - it's quite true.|
So since I can't really draw and decided that I had no patience to try and do a geometric drawing, I decided to do some geometric GP! YES! And I kind of really love this GP - it's just so pretty! I found a picture online to inspire me and then did something completely and utterly different. Do you find you do that as well? I clearly just wasn't feelin' it lol
|The 3 bottles again... I'm crazy ;)|
I really thought that shot was cool, even if you can't really see the design. :D
|Can you see the glitters? Hopefully!|
Yes, these took a little while, not too long, but long enough for me to line up the glitters all nice like. I usually use a toothpick but I realized that you can get a pretty nice point on a wax pencil and that works super well for picking up the glitters. I bought mine on ebay somewhere - you can get them anywhere that sells artsy things :) Super helpful if you like doing GP like I do.
