i really loved the pink and purple gradient i did a little while ago. but it chipped SO FAST! argh. it’s frustrating spending so much time to do something so cool looking, and it to be ruined in only a few days. so, i bought a cute little gel mani kit. it’s from target and it’s a single finger LED but that’s really all i need. so i’m trying my pink and purple gradient again. i used the same colors as last time (i put more purple in it) and did a gel top coat. it made it SUPER shiny! but i like it – it looks liquid. it’s been a few days and everything is seeming to hold up pretty well. as you can see there’s a few chips but this would have been way worse if not for the gel top coat.
