I posted this on IG already because I was too excited! I seriously could not get enough gradients. And, I did not even have to think about what colors to use! The two blues were sitting next to each other, looking perfect!
I promised myself I would practice my freehand skills. I put it off just because it was really freaking difficult! But, I felt the itch and bit the bullet because there was an upsurgence of freehand designs on all my feeds.
In the spirit of National Arthritis Month, the gradient is RA-friendly. THE FREEHAND, however, IS NOT. NOT. NOT. I set out only wanting to do one nail (hey, I have to start out slow) and am I glad that was it. Had I wanted to do more, I would not have been able to: I developed a severe case of the shakes. As in, my arm, all the way up to my shoulder was trembling like mad.
Regardless, I am really happy with how my freehand came out! But, I’m a long way from anything too complicated!
I hope you like it!
- I started with a base of China Glaze UV Meant to Be.
- I used a makeup sponge and Barry M Cancun at the cuticles.
- I used acrylic paint for the accent.
Hi, my name is Monica and I have RA.

Thank you, Jessica!! I’m glad the new layout is working out! I like the white background and simpler layout…it feels a lot more accessible!
