Please vote for me on ’s instagram story 💙 Thank you SO much to everyone who voted for me round 1 of , we made it to round 2! The next challenge is to create a look showing a trending nail art technique, so I chose my favorite - gradients. If you love my design, please go to 's story to vote, and read on for how I got the look!

I first created a gradient with in "All Your Dreams in Vending Machines” and “Lavendare to Find Courage” (I used the OPI Artist Series nail art brush to blend the colors together). Once you’ve done 2 coats and cured, wipe off the tacky layer and use striping tape to plan out your shapes. I next used the same gradient technique with “Dreams Need Clara-fication” and “Suzi-San Climbs Fuji-San”, but before you cure, remove the tape. I finished the look with GelColor Top Coat 💅🏻
