TGIF!!!!! I am just as excited about the weekend coming up as I am about sharing today’s post with you!!!
You know when you spot a manicure, like it, and ponder up ways on how to recreate it… but epically fail time after time?
Such was my story of woe with the Gradient Manicure… many-a failed attempt… until Sam from The Nailasaurus shared THIS TUTORIAL. Sam is a master at all things NAILS: freehand, stamping, gems and studs, and now SPONGED GRADIENTS!!!!
Thanks to Sam I am well on my way to mastering this sponged gradient manicure, and I hereby would like to dedicate this post to Sam!
(get it? NailaSAURUS… and my prop… a Dino-SAURUS )
Following Sam’s tutorial, I started out with one nearly-opaque coat of Sally Hansen Green Tea.
I then dipped my sponge in the ‘advised mixture’ of the lighter Green Tea and the darker shade, SOPI Ocean Love Potion.
I really was quite happy with the creamy gradient… and then, Cult Nails Hypnotize Me kept purring at me from my Helmer, then actually whimpering to be part of this gradient; now you tell me, how could I deny it the pleasure? (Plus, many of you Lovely Ladies encouraged me to try it via Twitter and Instagram)
ROAR!!!! Thank you Sam for sharing the tutorial that has enabled me to try this style of manicure! This is part of the reason I really like the blogging community- because we share our ideas and offer support and advice.
I’m one happy camper right now!!!
Was/is there a manicure style that you really like but struggle(d) to achieve? Was there something/someone who helped you out?
