The 31 Days Challenge Day 21 - Merge & Melt

Woohoo!!! two posts a day two days in a row!! LOL Don't get used to it ;-) 
Anyway, today in the New 31 Days Challenge the theme is Merge & Melt and while this was the theme I dreaded the most, it happened to be my new record in the quickest mani ever! It took me 10 minutes from the moment I started thinking of the colors to the moment I finished the clean-up! Not that I did such a great work on the clean-up but never mind. I like this mani and it is just a perfect ending to a very long and exhausting day! Let me just show it to you quickly before I go and crash on my bed! 
So what is Merge & Melt you ask? Well, usually in the daily challenges there's a water marble day. But we have all been there, tried that. Some liked it more - some liked it less. In general - not everyone can do them properly. So Merge & Melt is just another way (and nicer if I may say so) to say "mix your colors". It can be a water marble, a pin marble, a saran wrap marble, a gradient, a splatter, water color... anything where the colors get to mix a little. So I decided to try the fan brush gradient and I have a feeling I am going to try this method again and again! It was so quick and easy, yet I think it has an impressive result. The colors I used from the red to the purple are: Life - Strawberry (a local brand), Bourjois - Orange Creation, Peripera - YE901, Peripera - GR302, Sally Hansen - Pacific Blue and Nails Inc. - Westminster. Oh and the fan brush of course ;-)
A crappy phone picture just to show you the brush I used.





I hope you liked it. Any ideas for future color combo tries are more then welcome!

That looks amazing!! Can't believe it was so quick and easy to create - looks so complex; thanks for showing me a new technique))

Love it! Did you do put a drop of each color on foil or something, then dip the brush and drag it across your nails? I'll definitely try this!
