Bright Turquoise & Green Gradient

Hi dear readers !

Did you see that gradient trend lately ? They have been everywhere on blogs since a few weeks ! You know how I love gradients, so this trend make me very happy. I saw a lot of pretty ones these last days :)

My way to do gradients has always been the same: dip a kitchen sponge in a drop of polish, then dab it on the nail with a move from the tip to the nail bed. I never tried to improve it or make it a different way.
With the actual gradient trend and tutorials popping everywhere, I decided to try another way ! For this gradient, I painted the sponge with the two polishes then dabbed it on the nail. The result is smoother than what I usually had, and I like it :)


First I painted my nails with the lighter color, Catrice Easy Peasy Lemon Squeezy.
My second color is the lovely Custom Kicks by China Glaze. I painted one thick line of each color on my sponge and dabbed it on the nails, that's all !

I added some extra bling with one coat of China Glaze Wireless.

Next time I'd like to make it even smoother, I'll try to use a make up sponge and mix my colors together with a toothpick before applying them on the sponge, just as The Nailasaurus explains in her tutorial :)

What do you think ? Have you tried any gradient yet ? Do you like the trend ?

Have a nice day :)
