I've been meaning to try out gradient nails for a long time, it's actually really easy so I'd definitely recommend this for nail art beginners! I've done a simple tutorial to give you an idea of the basics, once you've mastered the technique you can easily experiment with more colours and styles.


I used models own beth blue and lilac dream here! I also used models own yellow meringue and pastel pink (below) which is a really nice combination.
