Today’s nail art is something I’ve not done yet.. Gradient! I’ve had a go at it in the past and it never went well! But I think this time it has turned out quite nicely. Ocean and Mermaid themes are being seen quite a lot as we go into spring so I thought I would go along with that and use my Barry M Gelly Paints to create an ocean gradient look.
I kept this simple and left the gradient as an accent. I painted my ring finger fully in Greenberry and let it dry. I then added the Blueberry onto a makeup sponge and dabbed it on to about two thirds of the nail. Once that had dried a little (it seems to work best when it’s tacky, not completely dry) I added the Blackberry shade to it. Then I add MUA Clear Topcoat to add back the shine lost from adding the polish with a sponge. The rest of my nails are painted with 2 coats of Blueberry.
Have you tried gradient nails before?
Let me know what you think!

Beautiful job! I can’t seem to master the gradient effect, but you do such a great job.
