Sunrise & Sunset - Revlon Watermelon, Orange & Pineapple Fizz

Hello, hello! In light of the Pantone colour of the year, I thought I would kick off my first post of 2012 with orange shades. None of them are coral in colour, but close enough! :)

I have done a short tutorial on gradient manis using jelly polishes, so I won't go through that again. All the polishes used here are from the Revlon Sweetly Seductive collection, which we have swatched in the past. The jelly nature of the collection means they're perfect for gradient manis.

The orange flakes stand out more than the red flakes, because they're a gold-ish shade which catches the light really well.

For my other hand, I changed the gradient around. I needed a few more coats of Orange Fizz since it was going over a darker base.

I like how the alternating shades looked. :)  Here's random info for you: I have double-jointed fingers (hypermobile, to be accurate) which look a little strange (I have been asked before what's wrong with my fingers, haha). Which is why I don't have many full photos of my fingers completely straightened out.

Back to polishes! I then decided to do a yellow to orange gradient on one hand, instead of orange to red.

The yellow to orange gradient mani is definitely more striking, since it's brighter. I had some very nice comments about this mani.

Credit for the title of this blogpost needs to go to Billy, who suggested I call this Sunrise and Sunset when he saw the above manicure. Don't ask me which is which! :P

I do love gradient manis, don't I? This will be the last one for awhile, I think!


  1. Lovely effect, I have the watermelon and orange ones, will look out for Pineapple as I really like the look you've got here.

    1. Thanks! Pineapple is definitely worth getting. I don't think I have another polish that is the same as Pineapple and it just completes the set so beautifully, especially if you want to do gradients with them!
