Cult Nails Gradient

Cult Nails Bad Devious Nature and Time Traveler

Hi guys!!!  Here is another one of the Cult Nails designs I did.  I think I only have this one and then one more to post.  I did this gradient with one coat of Cult Nails Bad Devious Nature as my base, and then I sponged on Cult Nails Time Traveler using this method I saw on Makeup Withdrawal.  Finally, I added on the single rhinestone at my cuticle.

I think next time I try a gradient I will try the method from The Nailasaurus and see if it works any better.  I liked how this one turned out but it was definitely not as smooth of a transition as the photos on the tutorial I used.  Hers looked almost airbrushed!

What method do you like to use for your gradients?

  2. The last couple of gradients I did, I painted the polish right on the sponge but my trip is I made sure the colours overlapped instead of just barely touching. It worked great for me that way.
    love your colour choices!
