DIY- Tricolour Gradient Nail art tutorial

Tricolour Gradient Nails
Tricolour Gradient Nails 2
The title says ‘tricolour gradient nails’, but I’m still not sure what I should call this nail art. I wanted to call it marble (it does look like marble, right?), but if I say ‘marble nail art’, I thought that you would imagine ‘water marble’ design. Any idea what it’s called? Anyone?
You’ll need:
  • 3 nail polishes
  • sponge
  • piece of paper

I used these polishes: (from left) Paul & Joe /14, Paul & Joe /30 and L’Oreal /101. I used L’Oreal for the base colour, and the other two for the gradient. Both Paul & Joe polishes are sheer, and I think sheer polishes work best for this design.
How to get the look:
1) Paint your nails with the base colour, and make sure the nails are dry before the next step.

2) Let’s prepare the sponge now. I’m using ordinary makeup sponges , and I cut one sponge into six small pieces because you’ll only need a small piece.

3) Place a small amount of polish on a piece of paper, and pick up some polish with the sponge.

4) Dab a few times on the paper to get excess polish off the sponge.

5) Tap the sponge on your nail a few times (please use your imagination to think that the paper is your nail!).

6) Repeat step 3 to 5 using other polish.
7) Apply top coat to smooth the lines.

It’s unbelievably easy to achieve this design, and I don’t know why I didn’t think about doing it until now! And I’m in love with this watercolour painting-esque effect. Yap, I can see myself doing this marble/gradient look in lots of different shades :)
Lots of Love!!!
