China Glaze Gradient


L-R China Glaze Deviantly Daring, Unpredictable
Heey Everyone ! Today I am really happy, because I have always had a hard time trying to do gradient manicures. On every blog I see their beautiful gradient manicures & they look so flawless. So I tried using different polishes, different techniques, then I tried a different sponge. I always tried using those make up applicator sponges, you know the wedge ones & ugh I could never get the gradient to blend well. So I must admit I gave up & earlier today I was in the bathroom looking for the extra sponges to clean & I seen how different the texture on the bathroom sponge was bigger. So I decided to get a new clean one & attempt it again, & I am so, so happy I did. This time the gradient faded. It was just so smooth the way it changed from Deviantly Daring to Unpredictable.

Here is a picture of what the sponge I used looked like.

  1. The CG Bohemian collection is awesome for doing gradients. I bought them after seeing what Dressed Up Digits did with them.

  3. It looks fabulous! Great job! I never thought to use a sponge with texture like that. I always used wedge sponges and find that applying white polish first really made a difference.
    Congrats on figuring out your own way! That's amazing!
