Gradient Using Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Lightening

Hey y’all!

As most of you know, there’s a popular trend going on lately called “gradient” nails.  I tried doing this earlier but I couldn’t do it without making a serious line in the nail where you dab it on.  Like so..

BUT! The wonderful Sam from Nailasaurus did an eye-opening tutorial here on how to do it and it was SO helpful! My second one was alot better.

I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Lightening for the base and did the gradient effect with Revlon’s 730 Valentine. Using the sponges for these mani’s are really easy and it gives it a really cool texture. You can use pretty much any combination of colors, like same color/different shades or contrasting colors or whatever. Very cool and I’m wanting to try out a multi-colored animal print with this technic sometime.

 What’s a technic you’d like to try sometime?

In Christ,
