My very first Gradient

So I promised more activity blog posts and I will definitely be doing more.  So I apologize if I blow up your blog feed with posts.

I have spent countless hours looking at pics of gradients and videos on how to do them.  I bought makeup sponges a few months ago, and was to afraid to try one, because I assumed I would fail miserably.

I mentioned wanting to do a gradient for a friend and she told me I should and a few on Twitter told me I should try as well.  So I gave it a go.

I used the following colors:

butter London Dodgy Barnett
OPI On Her Majesty's Secret Service
Sally Hansen Navy Baby

The used the method where you pant a thin coat of the lightest color on your nails, and then I painted my colors on a makeup sponge and then dabbed the colors onto my nails.

Since I don't have any self control I added NYC Matte Me Crazy, and OMG I love it!

Then I needed to add Black Cat Lacquer Love Will Tear Us Apart.

Overall, I am very proud of how well my gradient turned out and all of my additions to it seemed to work pretty well!

What do you think?


  1. I still haven't mastered gradients! This is gorgeous though, love it, especially with the matte top coat! :)

  2. Fantastic! Loving the changes around here too!

  3. Love it! I have to try this some day. I bought the sponges months ago. lol Thanks for sharing! :-)

    1. I was the same. I was afraid it would be bad. I watched a bunch of videos before I did it.

  4. It's funny how we think these techniques will be beyond us until we try. I am the same with every new nail technique. Your results are fab - well done!

  5. Omg! Your nail's size and shape look like mine! :)

  6. Well done! Your first gradient was a big success :D
