Today I tried out The Nailasaurus' Gradient Nails tutorial. I used Orly's Won't Chip for a top coat, Sally Hansen's Green With Envy for the second color, and Orly's Lemonade for the bottom coat. I had to use two coats to get proper coverage with the yellow color. One coat was almost thick enough though. I painted all my nails with two coats of Lemonade.
Then I mixed the green and yellow together on a paper plate using a paperclip, and then I used a kitchen sponge to dab the polish onto my fingers.
I cleaned up the skin around my fingers with cotton swabs I dipped into polish remover. I coated each nail with the clear top coat, which helped smooth out the sponge marks.
I like this look, but it's not as refined as The Nailasaurus' paint job. I'll have to try it out with other polishes, and sponges. I need to buy more top coat, maybe I'll treat myself to a new color! Hope ya'll had a great weekend, and happy DIYing, chris!
