Falling for Nail Art Challenge - Day 2

Greetings all.

Today's theme for the challenge is "Early Sunsets." Which made me think of a sunset gradient. The problem is, I suck at gradients. I don't know why, they just don't work for me. I actually tried to do two gradients, and neither of them is really what I wanted. Meh. Anyways, here they are.



The first ended up looking more like a rainbow, which obviously is not what I was going for. I like the colors in the second one, they give it more of the look I was going for, but my sponging skills leave something to be desired - I didn't manage to blend the colors nicely. :o(

Oh well, what can you do? I like doing challenges to try new things. I still don't like doing gradients though. If you have a trick that makes them work well for you, pleeeeeeease feel free to share with me. And remember to check out the nail art from the other participants in the links below.

Laters!

  1. I really like the second one! What type of sponge did you use? Check out my post. I layer them all on the sponge at once.

    1. I use a makeup sponge. For some reason even when I put all of the colors on the sponge to dab together I have problems. I probably just need to practice more. :o)
