Hi Everyone! I have another holiday design for you today, a Christmas Gradient! Of course, you could use this technique for any color combination. First up, my finished product:
Pure Ice- Jaguar (pale, shimmery gold)
Color Club- Ho-Ho-Holly (green with gold and green shimmer)
Icing- Red-y or Not Here I Am (red glitter in a pale red jelly)
There are three ways to do gradient, or ombre, nails (that I know of ;-)). The first way is to pick a color then paint each nail a different shade, lighter to darker. The second way I've shown you here. And lastly, the way I did this manicure.
I started with two coats of Pure Ice Jaguar since it was the lightest color. Once that dried completely I painted a make-up sponge with the three colors in the order I wanted them to appear on my nails:
Lastly, I applied two coats of top coat to give it a smooth finish. I hope y'all enjoy this design. I love how it turned it out. But now I kind of wished I had waited to do this on Christmas Eve. Oh well. Happy Polishing!!
