Well I was asked to make a tutorial on this, and I know it is long over due! So sorry for that, but here it is and I hope you enjoy it!
Here are the materials that you will need:
- Nail polishes you want to work with
- Scissors (depending which sponging technique you pick)
- A straw
- Something to place droplet of polish on to
Apply your favorite base coat upon your nails. Allow it to dry to touch.
For the next part, you could pick your favorite way to do gradients. I will be showing you two ways of how to do them.
The first part is the way I normally do my gradients. I take the scissors, and cut pieces of the sponge. Never rip your sponges because you will end up with particles of the sponge upon your nails.
For the second way of the gradient, I will be showing you the way Sammy (The Nailasauarus) has done with her gradients.
To make the clean up less, you could either use the tape to cover up the surrounding area of your nails, or use Vaseline.
You could either stick your straw into your nail polish bottle, or place a dab of it on to your sheet and pick it up that way. I usually place a droplet on to my sheet.
It does take awhile to get a hang of it, but it always comes out beautifully. People will be wondering what is on your nails! If you do these, let me know! I would love to see them!
