Gradient Manicure

I've been in a polish slump for the past few weeks.  I've barely painted my nails and if I did, I didn't take any pictures.  Wednesday night I decided I was bored looking at my nails and I needed a manicure that would inspire me.  That's when I decided to do a rainbow gradient manicure.  I think I did well for my first try.

I painted my nails white with China Glaze Snow.  I then used a makeup sponge to do my gradient.  I used China Glaze Bahamian Escape, China Glaze Shocking Pink and Diamond Cosmetics Lemon Yellow Zest.

    1. I thought I couldn't either. I tried out a few techniques. I guess you just have to find the one that works for you.
