5 Ways To Create Gradient Nails

Gradient nails are here to stay. To master this trend, follow our easy step-by-step guide.

1. BASE
Start by creating a base for your nails to craft the gradient design on. We chose a white base.

2. TAPE
To avoid getting your hands and fingers messy use some tape to cover up around your nails.

3. SPONGE
Now you’ll need an unused makeup sponge – a foundation wedge will be ideal. Select three complementary coloured nail varnishes and apply three even strokes to the edge of your sponge. You want the colours to slightly overlap one another and measure the approximate length and width of your nail. We picked pink and purple.

4. CREATE
Dab your varnished sponge onto your nail, moving it up and down the length of it. The colours should blend and fix on your nails. Repeat several times, allowing the coats to dry between applications.

5. TOP COAT
Now apply a topcoat of transparent polish. You may want to apply several layers to smooth out a bumpy surface. Let dry and enjoy your new stylish nails!
