Nail Art: Textured Gradient (2 ways!)

Textured Gradient Nail ArtSince it seems I’m in the business of hoarding the new textured polishes that have come out recently I’ve been trying to come up with different ways to use them. I already did textured polka dots using China Glaze Bump & Grind but I really wanted to try doing a gradient. I wasn’t sure how it would work but as it turns out I really liked the result.

I did 2 gradients; one using a white base (Ulta Snow White) and just sponging China Glaze Of Coarse! on top. The end result looked great but didn’t have near as much of a gradient look as I was going for.

The second gradient I did I used Revlon Blue Lagoon with OPI Just Groovy sponged over the top. I then added a matte top coat (I used butter LONDON Matte Finish Topcoat). After I let that dry completely I sponged a small amount of China Glaze Of Coarse! on the tips. While this version definitely had more of a gradient look I still liked my first attempt better.

Anyway, below the jump there are swatches of both versions. Let me know which you like better!

  1. I like the first one. I have problems with doing gradients though.
