Purple reciprocal gradient

Hello ladies :) When I first saw Emma's reciprocal gradient nails, I knew I would have to try them out one day. Of course, I kept putting it off until recently! For my look, I applied two coats of OPI Do you lilac it as a base colour, then took Ulta3 royal fever for the gradient. Once that was dried, I placed some striping tape on the nail and reversed the colours for the second gradient before removing the tape.

The end result?

Tada! ♥

I was planning on layering some fine holo glitter over it the next day, but I never got around to it :( I think it would have looked divine too, if I had!

Have you tried the reciprocal gradient look yet? What are your thoughts on it?

Thanks for reading.


  1. Oh yes, I like this!

  2. I'm going to try this tonight, and I'm sure it's going to be a horrible mess! This looks great though :)

  3. Helly, let me know how it went! Share a link here or on fb :)
