Picture Day

Changed my nails for my senior pictures. Our school colors are purple and gold, so I decided to show a little love for my college and came up with this gradient
Also took some pictures along the way for anyone who does not know how to make a gradient. It's a HOW TO with pictures!
 
Start off with 2-4 shades of a color. Here I chose purple
Apply lightest color to whole nail (after base coat has dried)
using a make-up sponge, apply a darker color to a little over half of the nail with a dabbing motion
like this!
do the same thing with all your colors. From lightest to darkest
 
you could leave them like this or you could...
add a glittery topcoat!

Here are some more pictures of the finished product



Gimp nail is gimp :(
 China Glaze in Agent lavender
Sally Hansen insta-dri in Lively Lilac
Color Club in Pucci-licious
Wet n Wild Fantasy Makers in Vampish Red
Sinful Colors in All About You


I hope you enjoyed :)

no, I used a dry sponge. I'm not sure what would happen with a wet sponge, I may have to try it out and see :)
