So I decided to try using a sponge to create a gradient effect for my nails. Haha it definitely didn’t turn out the best, but I think it’s a noble first attempt.
Here are some things which I hope to keep in mind for next time!
1. Use scotch tape to make clean up less of a hassle. My cuticles are a mess!
2. Not only think of the colours, think of the opacity of the nail polish. I just picked 3 colours that I think looked good together, but when applying, it was really splotchy.
The colours I used were:
(Left – Right)
Essie – Naughty Nautical : Super beautiful. Very opaque and has a nice shimmer to it.
China Glaze – For Audrey : Very popular China Glaze colour for good reason. I think my bottle is getting a little old though and is not applying as nicely as it once used to.
OPI – Gargantuan Green Grape : Not very green anymore! I remember when I first bought this green it was a more minty, but it seems to have lightened a lot. Very VERY streaky polish. I like the colour, but you need 3 solid coats to get it opaque.
Well, live and learn right? I hope to try this technique again!
Thanks for reading!
