Gradient Nails

I’ve seen gradients been done on several blogs lately and I wanted to try this technique myself. I can tell you I had so much fun doing it! To create the gradient I started with one coat of Color Club’s Tangerine Scream and then sponged Tangerine Scream and Elf Royal Purple three times over the nails, to give the manicure more depth.

What do you think? Have you tried gradient nails yet? If not, is it something you would want to try?

    Gasp! The colors look so beautiful together! They definitely compliment each other nicely :D

    I love that these two colors are never seen together! They’re really pretty together, though!

    Miriam: Thank you! I thought they would go well together :D

    Meredith: Thank you so much!

    drinkcitra: Thank you, I was looking for a complement to orange when this purple came to my mind :)

    ScarsLikeLace: Both of them are lovely! I should show ELF alone too, so you can see how beautiful this one is!

    Underbar kombination. Har inte testat gradient ännu men blir minst sagt sugen nu. :)

    I love this color combo!! I’ve done gradients, but I never like the outcome. I’m not giving up though, lol!

    Vad snyggt! Jag har bara gjort gradienter med glitter eller färger som ligger nära varandra… Måste prova något mer vågat snart tror jag ^^

    Vad läckert! Älskar både färgkombinationen och gradien-en. Den skulle jag gärna prova.

    Nailart-Addict: Thank you, I love the combo too!

    Pamsan: Oh, det var så roligt att göra! Prova!

    Polityr: Tack! Jag ville ha en hög färgkontrast :D

    Frosso: I didn’t think of it as tropical, but now I do :D

    MariJo: I know what you mean! It’s like me and glitter sandwitches, I like it on others, but haven’t managed to do one that I like myself :D

    Annie: Visst är det roligt! Prova lite kontraster också!

    sminkan: Prova! Det är så roligt!

    Amanda: Thank you :)
