sponging

April 30 Day Challenge Day 7: Rainbow

I love rainbow nails and I love sponging gradients so I knew what I wanted to do for this day of the challenge. I chose some pastel shades so that my rainbow was a bit softer looking and not too in your face! (The result looks very My Little Pony-esque to me – not sure if that’s a good thing or not!!)

I ‘m always in two minds when I do a gradient whether to show pictures of it before applying a top coat when it has that interesting sponged texture or once it’s been all smoothed out and looks more ‘finished’. I like both looks so I decided to put two pics up today. One of the pre-top coat and glitter that I added on a whim, and one of the raw sponged gradient.
