Gradiation Nails

So, I love Gradition Nails.
They have been around for years.
I first saw them on my Korean friend nails around 2004ish.
They are so simple to do and you dont need
any fancy tools to create the look. Looks great on long 
and short nails...and you can use whatever colors you want.
I did an Ocean Inspired Gradiation video on youtube a while ago
& the quality is horrible because I was using my built in laptop
webcam at the time. But, I did like the end results.

This time I chose to do sort of a snowy look with one 
main color. You could use 3 different shades of the same 
color could have one main color and use white & 
black to mix in ...creating your gradiation. There are so many
ways to create gradiation nails. You could even use a small 
makeup sponge but I prefer just painting the tip and then
dragging the brush down to 1/2 the gives a similar
effect and its faster. Just make sure you dont have
an opaque polish.This works better with sort of slightly
sheer or sparkly polishes.
Also make sure there isnt too much polish on your 
brush if you choose to do the dragging method.

Experiment ! Its so much fun !


  1. hahaha i tried it with my blue nail polish... but it didn't work out so well
    yours are soo pretty!!

  2. thanksss guys
    kisjonah - was your blue sheer ?
    & did u use more than one shade of blue ?
    using a makeup sponge might help

  3. i used only on shade of blue but i used really thin layers so that the first layer looked like only glitter, guess next time i really should use diffrent colors of blue -_-;
    and im gonna try the makeup sponge ^^
