Nevertheless, I must celebrate a new season by putting it on my nails! And for once I knew exactly what I wanted to do- I've not done a sponge gradient since I did Gradient Nails in week 3- and I thought it would work really well with some pretty autumnal colours :)
I suppose you could argue that it's a little sunset-like, but I don't really care! I thought about stamping some leaves over the top (to make it more autumnal) but I liked it as it was.
|Models Own Pro Clementine, Avon Sahara Sun, No7 I'm Exquisite and e.l.f. Blush|
First I used 2 coats of Models Own Clementine as a base, followed by a coat of Avon Sahara Sun (a really really old polish) to add shimmer and depth to the colour. Then I sponged No7 I'm Exquisite over about 1/2 to 2/3 of my nail, and sponged e.l.f. Blush over the top 1/4 :) I'm really happy with how they turned out and I should definitely do sponge gradients more often! (though I'm sure I say that about many nail art techniques!)
Are there any techniques you find yourself neglecting for no good reason?
