Mint Gradient

Updated: Aug 6, 2019

I love gradients! Something so basic is one of my favorite things to come out of the nail art community.

You can wear this design just about anywhere. You can change the colors, add more, make shaped gradients. The possibilities are endless.

For this design I used a latex free makeup sponge, Miss Bliss Simply Peel and the following polish:

White: Sally Hansen “White On”

Turquoise: Salon Perfect “Icy Haute”

Mint: Color Club “Age of Aquarius”

And of course my current favorite quick dry top coat by Seche Vite

How To:

First, I painted a base layer using Sally Hansen “White On”. I usually don’t use a base white layer but I really wanted these colors to pop. These colors are opaque enough to be used by themselves but a little extra vibrancy is always welcome.

I used the Simply Peel liquid latex to cover my cuticle and side of my finger.

I painted half of the makeup sponge with Salon Perfect “Icy Haute”and the other half with Color Club “Age of Aquarius” making the colors overlap slightly to blend it. I did a number of light dabs over the nail making sure to cover all of the white polish. A number thin layers will blend better than a few thick layers. Continuing dabbing until your reach desired opacity.

Next, I peeled of the Simply peel and cleaned up any remaining polish. Finally, I added a layer of quick dry top coat to top it off.

Tell me what you think!
