Chevron scaled gradient - on short nails!

To all the non-believers out there (mostly 12 year olds on Instagram), you CAN DO a scaled gradient on short nails! Despite popular belief, it is totally possible, so long as you mind your gradient spacing :) I did these ones more or less to prove this point, figured I'd make use of my newfounds nubs (see more on my nail break travesty here and an update here). This original scaled gradient design was created for the weekly nail art challenge I co-host on Instagram along with @missbellatracey and Lacquerstyle. The prompt is gradient (which I hi-jacked to scaled gradient of course) and the theme is matte - check out the matte version below!

How GORGEOUS is Picture Polish Moscow though?!? You can find it at Picture Polish (based in Australia) or Harlow & Co. (Canada & US, super fast shipping!)
