Can I Call This A Gradient?
In the past couple of weeks, I've seem some of the most beautiful gradients from Jeanette at The-swatchaholic, from Carolina at Colores de Carol and of course Sammy's brilliant tutorial.
I had to try a gradient myself but it didn't quite turn out how I had planed! I was hoping for that smooth transition from one colour to the next, like that blended eyeshadow effect as I like to call it, without any of the grittiness but I had no such luck :( Maybe I should have used more complementing colours instead of contrasting.
I still like the way it turned out but I wasn't trying to go for the obviously clear graduation look. It's definitely something I'll try again soon, after I practice a little more.
I added a layer of Accessorize Crystal Shimmer to add a little bit of sparkle and at a last attempt of smoothing everything out.
