Fast drying nails are such a boon to every nail artist and summer is the perfect time to do all sorts of experiments with your nail art game.And, to match sassy outfits with colourful nail arts makes us feel like we are all in Diva Land!! One of the most commonly loved techniques for colourful nail arts are Gradients. Not only do they stand out alone, but also uplift a nail art to different heights.
Mix different shades you haven’t tried before, make patterns you are unsure about but have been dying to try, in short, just experiment and create your own Summer Gradient nail art.
WE ARE GOING TO SHOW YOU THE GRADIENT NAIL ART TECHNIQUE TO BRIGHTEN UP YOUR SUMMER .
HOW TO ACHIEVE
To start with the method it is always advised to have a White Base Polish if you are going for Bright colours, as it makes the nail art pop. Also, a good cuticle defender and Make-up Sponges are your best friends! For neatness.
- Now apply the white base coat.
(Pro Tip: Always let the base completely dry out before starting, otherwise you are very likely to smudge the Gradient.)
- Take a sponge and apply one colour on top of it and the other slightly below it. Now merge them at a point so that there is a gradient like look on the sponge which you shall imprint.
- Don’t worry if one dab doesn’t get you there! You can go again and again at it, until you reach the desired look.
(Pro Tip: Make sure to let the polish dry for at least three minutes before repeating a dab.)
- After it has dried, apply a top coat and let it dry completely.
- Now use an ear bud and dip it in the acetone or nail polish remover and wipe off the extra edges. Use a brush for the finer details.
