These gradient nails look AMAZING, and are one of the easiest techniques I know…

The technique is the same one I used for these Sunset Nails, but with a horizontal gradient:

  • 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
  • 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

The colour scheme used here was inspired by WickedNails Skittle Gradient design, pretty cool!
