Sponged Gradient - NOTD


With polishes from my Epic Polish Haul I wanted to try out the "NEW" way of
sponging. I did a search and found a method that The Nailasaurus shows HERE.
All I can say is that this manicure sure got a lot of attention and stares from people.

Essence - Chilled Orange and Lounge Chair Affair
MeMeMe - Vivacious and Savina - Purple Prince

Here's how I did it:
I started out with a base coat and a layer of white polish. This so that
the colors would "pop". Then I painted my nails with the lightest color
Essence "Soul Sista" - Chilled OrangeFollowing the steps in
The Nailasaurus post using the lightest color and the remaning colors
Essence "Soul Sista" - Lounge Chair Affair, MeMeMe - Vivacious
and Savina - Purple Prince I dabbed my nails with a cosmetic sponge.
Because sponging makes the nails a bit bumpy I applied a couple of coats
of a thicker topcoat to smooth out the surface. I mattified one of my nails.


I fell in love with the matte nail. How about you... Do you like it shiny or matte?

    1. Thank you very much! I think that is the reason why I did an accent nail, cause I kinda liked both.

  8. This looks yummm!!!
    And I am usually a matte lover but I honestly cannot make up my mind on this. They both look real good!
    I think the shiny version makes me think more of the sherbet ice, and the matte is far more elegant and sophisticated. I need them both! LOL
