Hey guys! Today's post actually didn't go as planned, but sometimes that's a good thing. Yesterday, I tried twice to get a finished design, but screwed up both times. After feeling frustrated, and headachy from the polish fumes, I took a break and hoped today would be better.
This is my third (different) attempt, and I am in love. Lately, I am finding myself drawn to the more complicated looks and intricate designs. I feel a sense of deep satisfaction when I have completed something more challenging. Even if it takes a few hours!

I love the way a gradient looks with something done on top, whether it is a glitter topper or stamping or like this, a lattice pattern. It really emphasizes the color change and creates so much depth. Also, I am pretty impressed with my gradient skills. I think I have found a good technique and it blends colors so smoothly! Maybe I should do a tutorial?
Not to brag, but I think this is one of the best things I have done! It took quite a while, and now I have a finger cramp from holding a tiny brush. So worth it though, cause I love it so hard.
So what do you guys prefer? Easy and quick, or long and complicated?
