Round gradient cyclone: don't get sucked in

So I did this mani back in January shortly after my middle nail saw the true death, which explains my much shorter nails in these pics. Idk why it took me forever to edit these up - wait I do know - I have no time thanks to NAIL PORN it's the hottest thing on the street, don't cha know?

In any case enjoy these round gradient neon pink and purple nails topped with a black cyclone. Reminds me of Cheshire the cat from Alice in Wonderland. I like cats so, makes sense.

Excuse my ghostly jaundice-plagued skin tone, blame the intense neon for scaring the fack out of my camera.

I used the original cyclone nail vinyls from Twinkled T to create the spiral look and Liquid Palisade cuticle protector (the purple stuff) to protect my skin from the gradient sponging. Have you seen my review of 6 peel-off cuticle protector products yet? Check it out here!

This is how small of a section of sponge I used to work around the nail to create the circle gradient effect:




That's all for now! Now go lay down, you're dizzy.
