Green Gradient

Hi fellow nail polish lovers!  I'm still in Florida and will be flying back this afternoon, so I hope to catch up, at least a little bit, tonight.

I decided to give a gradient manicure another try.  I've tried one in the past, which you can see here, but the colors didn't fade the way I liked.  I then saw this technique that I wanted to try.  Please click on the link to see all the details, it's a pretty simple way to do a gradient.

For this mani, I used Sally Hansen Jade Jump and Revlon Ocean.  I then added Kleancolor Sparkle Emerald at the tips with the brush.  I topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat.

I was really happy with how this mani turned out.  It truly looks like the colors are fading into each other.  Now, I want to try it with so many polishes.  The possibilities are endless!

Are you a fan of gradient manicures?  Have you ever tried one?

  17. Amazing gradient! I love how there are so many good techniques for this look and everyone can find the one that works best for them. I've tried this one before but didn't know about the wet sponge so it didn't come out well. Have to try it again now!
