15 Day Nail Challenge – Day 10 Gradient


Gradient nails! In the last few months gradient nails have become extremely popular, especially when Sammy from the Nailasaurus posted her fabulous tutorial which made it even easier for people to do the gradient manicure even with creme polishes! 

I have tried to do a gradient with creme polishes several times but it has never turned out very well. I will keep trying though! 

 

For today’s manicure I did a simple nude to blue gradient with some glitter to help tie it all together. I really like how it turned it! I can’t decide if it looks more like a starry sky or ice. If you had longer nails than me, you could do it so that the blue is just on the tip of your nail like more of a French manicure. Enjoy!

 


 

I started out with a base of a Color Club sheer French manicure pink then added a mixture of blue polishes with a sponge to create the basic gradient. I then added some of Color Club’s Beyond The Mistletoe and finally Revlon’s Belle.

 



I can’t believe how quickly this challenge is going! I am absolutely loving seeing everyone’s different designs. Come back tomorrow to see day 11 which is Metallic nails!

 

Thank you for reading!

  1. This is such a gorgeous gradient!!! I love the blue and the glitter really does help to tie it all together. I think that it looks like ice in my opinion and I love it, will definitely being giving this one a whirl in the near future. How do you get the colours to blend so neatly together because when I have tried in the past it has ended up in a bit of a slodgey mess.

    1. Thank you! I mixed some of the lightest blue with some clear polish to make it sheerer then dabbed most of the polish off the sponge so it was REALLY sheer and thin. Then just gradually built up the colour. I hope this helps!
