Wedding Weekly: Theme/Color (Nail Challenge Week 4) My First Gradient Manicure!

Ready to see my first gradient manicure?  Ok, here it is!

I used Icing's All that Glitters is Green, Zoya's Skylar, and Wet N Wild's Frosted Fuchsia

I was pretty happy with how it turned out and how easy it was to do!  I just sponged Skylar over the tips with a makeup sponge wedge.  My best tip would be to work quickly with this technique because I did get some bumps when the polish started to dry on the sponge.  But, the top coat really smoothed most of it out :)

If you don't mind seeing my rough cuticles up close, you an click any of the images to enlarge :)

Here are the photos from my Wedding Day that I used for inspiration. My colors were mostly Blue and Green with a splash of Fuchsia.  Haha, that always makes me think, "My colors are blush and bashful, Mama!" from Steel Magnolias.  God, I love that movie :)
