I love gradients. It’s such a great way to make an interesting base for other nail art, like stamping or free-hand designs.

The thought of trying to swatch my way through all of these polishes felt a bit daunting and overwhelming. I kept on putting it off, telling myself that … More Swatch My Stash! OPI #1: The Reds
