Valentine Nail Art Challege: Red or Pink

I have taken up another challenge this month which gives me a way to do some valentine themed mani's! I have never really gotten to into valetines day, probably cause I never had that someone to spend it with, or since I am not a fan of pink? ;) None the less I love doing themed mani's! 

This challenge is hosted by dayyorkLOVES. There is 10 challenges and you can do them at your own pace, it is running from the 1st-14th. To see what kind of theme's we have check out below.

Now onto my mani! This is a new technique to me, I figured it would be a great way to combine red and pink without it being a normal gradient! This is a called a Reciprocal Gradient, Globe and Nail has an awesome tutorial on how to do this you can visit that here.

I used butter LONDON: Pillar Box Red and Zoya: Shelby, top coat of Out the Door.

Isn't this a sweet technique!?! It kind of psyches you out when you first look at it, at least it does to me. The only thing that was a pain to me is cutting all the stripping tape, I am just not a patience nail artist. Otherwise it is super easy since it is just two gradients!
