So I ended up doing an Easter manicure after all...
But! it was also a learning process for the new gradient technique
with a make-up sponge that I've been seeing around the web.
It's definitely a little trial and error... the full tutorial that I followed is from
The Beauty Department that is also pictured at the very bottom of the post.
Don't forget to wet your sponge and instead of using a piece of paper to blot,
I went straight for the nail... too much paint was being removed on the paper.
It's such a fun idea & since the paint ends up being very thin, it will probably last a little longer!
before the top coat.
