These nails are fab for summer” The colour scheme is really fun and can involve from 2-6 polishes so this is a technique you can really play about with!

How To:

  • Paint all your nails an opaque base coat in a neutral colour
  • Take a make up sponge, dip it in water and squeeze it out slightly
  • Choose your polishes. You can either change the shades (from light to dark) or the hues (e.g. from orange to purple)
  • Take the lid of all the polishes and paint small dabs onto the sponge
  • One nail at a time, dab the sponge up and down on a nail a few times (the more you dab, the more blended a design you’ll get)
  • Repeat to build up the colour
  • Topcoat for a glossy shine

This can create so many effect! I used this the other day on a friend, with a horizontal rainbow across all the nail and it looked amazing (sorry no photo…)
