I've done gradients before, but this time around I tried a slightly different technique. Rather than ripping off little pieces of sponge and doing each color one at a time, I applied all the colors to a full make up sponge and did them all at once. I actually really liked this technique. I would say the only issue I had with doing it this way is that it can be hard to paint the stripes on the sponge to line up on your nail the way you want. Two colors would have been easier to do this with than four. I love how they bleed together with this technique.
I don't feel like it photographed as well as it actually looked. My colors were China Glaze White on White, Revlon Peachy, Julep Selena and NYX Sepia. I purposely used a top coat that I knew would smear the colors a bit to help with the blending effect, Jordana Quick Dry. For the extra shine I finished it off with Poshé.
This is definitely a sponging technique I will be using in the future.
