Abstraction in yellow and pink

It was supposed to be a swatch of Avon’s Lemon Sugar, which is a beautiful pale yellow creme, but in the last moment I decided to do a pink gradient on the tips. Then, while waiting for the gradient to dry, I took a thin nail art brush aaand…

… and I ended up with this abstract nail design. I guess the post is not about Lemon Sugar any longer :D It’s not easy to see the base color under the abstract pink rope ladders (I don’t know how else to call them lol).
Let me just tell you that I love this pastel yellow, it’s not bright and not warm and therefore goes ok with my skin tone.

Lemon Sugar is a perfect color to wear in summer, so I’ll swatch it properly soon. It’s very close to my other favorite among yellow cremes, Lemonade by Orly. Perhaps Avon is a bit lighter, and it’s even better :)

Overall, for the pink to yellow gradient nails I needed:

  • Clear base
  • Avon Lemon Sugar – pastel yellow creme nail polish for the background
  • Orly Hot Stuff – pink on the tips
  • Clear top

The abstract rope ladders are painted freehand with Lemon Sugar and Hot Stuff. They were actually very easy to do, just 2 vertical wavy lines and a couple of short horizontal lines for each nail.

That’s it for today :) Thank you for stopping by! Have a good weekend ♥

  3. It reminds me of DNA strands a little. I like how this yellow and pink mix together :)

      Hehe I guess it’s a chemist talking inside you :)) but I like the DNA interpretation of the design, it’s much better than the rope ladder idea!
