Leadlight Gradient with Pure Ice Tints

Hi guys! Today's post is short and sweet. I'm preparing several mega swatch posts for the next few days so I have a lot of pictures to go through. I mentioned on my last post about the Pure Ice New Year New Hue Collection that the new tints could be used to leadlight. So here's a simple mani showing you how.

I started with a white base, then stamped a rose pattern from MoYou London Pro 04 plate over it using Wet n Wild Black Creme. Then I created a simple syrup gradient over the stamped image with the jelly tints. First, one brush stroke of Rosy Glow near my cuticles, then Purple Haze, then Blue Hue and repeat for a second coat. The colors just blend together on their own.

You could also color in the individual flowers with the polishes, which I did do but then decided I liked the gradient look better.

Pure Ice tints where provided for review but they are available at most Walmart locations for $1.97 and at Walmart.com.
