Nail Color Gradiation

I first saw this technique done
on my Korean Friends nails.
Its becoming really popular everywhere.
It looks great on short or long nails.
This is my first try at it. 

What you need:

3 or 4 shades of the same color.
1 light/sheer. 1 medium. 1 dark. 
1 sparkly one (optional) 

Im using pink 
But you can use yellow,green, blue,black
Whatever you want ! 

How to do it : 

1. Cover the nail in the light shade. 
Do a second coat.

2. Mix the light shade with your medium shade. 
Do this in a plastic plate or whatever you have. 
Use the medium shade brush to mix and apply. 
Start in the middle of your nail and brush up.
You want to be able to see the light shade 
at the bottom 

3. Grab your medium shade and put some
on the top part of your nail so that you can
still see some of the light/medium mix.
Basically you are just painting lines of 
different shades on your nail 
to make that fading effect. 

4. Next Grab your dark shade. Paint the very
top of your nail tip. This is the smallest layer. 

5. You can now add a sparkly color on
your nail or leave it plain.

6. Add 2 coats of top coat to make it 
nice and gloss

Done !
