One of the most popular kinds of nail art are gradient nails. What I love about them is that they look absolutely stunning considering how quick and easy they are to do! They are a little bit messier than polka dots, but clean up is easy with the right tools! Gradient nails are my “cheer me up” manicure and I’m sure they will become yours too. Now, let’s learn how to do them!
I’m using three colours today, but you can use just two or even more than three! For today’s tutorial, it is best to use creme finish polishes so no glitter (I will show you how to do glitter gradients later on!). I love pink and purple so I chose to fade my gradient from pink to purple with my in-between colour being a fuchsia.
You will know when there is not enough polish on the sponge, when it starts to stick to the nail more than usual or even worse, pieces of makeup sponge start to come off and stick to your nail! On average, I can sponge about 2 nails fully before having to reapply the polish.
This sponging technique is one that will be very useful over time and will allow you to create some beautiful nail art. Hope you had fun!
