I have been watching so many nail art videos lately, and have a list longer then I care to admit of all sorts of great techniques and ideas that I want to try. I figured it was about time that I actually stopped watching hours of instructional videos and actually gave it a go!
Here’s a quick look of them out in the sun:


After I made my decision to try out gradient nails, I stopped over in my local Walgreens to help gather some nail polishes that were all in the same color scheme.  Luckily for me I found that the “Sinful” line was all 99 cents a bottle!  And some of the brands such as Rimmel and Sally Hansen had a lot of clearance bottles. Obviously these are not exactly top of the line nail products by any means, but they are cheap and right now, that’s all I need to hear right now!



This look was created with the polishes listed  here, as well as instructions about layering the different polishes:

I hope you like them! Comments and suggestions are always welcomed Smiley

Very fun! I like how the light is nearest the cuticle, it will be so much less noticeable as your nails grow out!

Thank you! When I first saw videos of it was like "well duh"! Less touching up as your nails grow. Plus, I have such an unsteady hand these days, the sparkle helps cover up any bumps or hiccups I may have.
