Day 10: Gradient Nails

Something I was scared to do - gradient nails! I have never attempted to do a gradient before, so I figured doing it for the challenge was the way to learn.


I decided to go with blue, since I have quite a few blue polishes. I tried to pick colors that were similar enough to blend into each other well, but I didn't want colors that were too close.


As for the actual colors:


I started with a coat of Mint Condition (it's very blue, but looks more minty here). Then I put Blue Streak on a makeup sponge and dabbed it on. After that, I put Fashionista on the same sponge, and dabbed it just around the tip of each nail. I topped it all with Maisie!


For my first attempt at a sponge gradient, I think it went alright. It's a bit subtle, so maybe I'll have to choose some colors that are a bit different from each other next time.

  1. Very pretty! I love doing gradients because its one of the easier designs and can look really cool, especially with a stamp! :)

    1. Thanks :D Sounds like something I may have to try! I actually haven't done stamping yet either (I know, I'm such a noob), but I'm willing to try it! It looks pretty fun :)

    1. Thank you! I like the colors too - it reminds me of the ocean! I sort of want to do a sunset gradient next time :)
