I Finally Mastered Gradient Nails!

Gradient nails are something that I've been admiring for a long time but never quite managed to master myself. Until very recently that is! 
I've seen a few tutorials and this one from The Beauty Department looked the most promising but using four colours seems like it would take a lot of time and effort just to get the effect of one colour fading in to another, I figured there must be an easier way! After a bit of playing around, I found a method that's super fast, very easy and all you need is two colours and a sponge.

To get this ombré result, I used BYS Pretty as a Peach, Rimmel Urban Princess and a small section of sponge. More details to follow tomorrow!

  19. this is so cute, I love the shades of pink. I own a BYS nail polish and I think they're pretty good for the price, however mine is a neon pink and it doesn't get much use!

  27. nice work! I looked at a tutorial and found a way that works for me. I get a makeup sponge, I paint the design i want onto the sponge (usually just stripes) then i dab the sponge onto my nails. I repeat this a few times to get the desired affect, but it is working very well for me. Just got to make sure I have a nice base coat first.

  37. That gradient has a lovely "smoky" look.. just like the smoke when you are having a cigarette!
