NOTD: Sprite (Blue-Green-Yellow Gradient)

Hello everyone! About a month ago, I saw cutepolish's tutorial on YouTube and decided to use the same technique to create gradient nails. I ended up with a design that very much reminded me of Sprite's logo. Hahaha :) 


I think this technique works really well in creating gradients with different colors. But for monochromatic themes, I still use the brush technique or my usual sponge method so that I'd have more control in the blending of the colors :)


Nails of the day with Elianto nail polish in Yellow, Lime Green and Novy, and Wish glitter top coat.


I used a porous sponge in creating the gradient, which explains why the design has a gritty look to it. I found out that when you use makeup sponges or any not-so-porous ones, the gradient would look smoother.

I was actually in the middle of organizing my nail polishes when I came up with this color scheme. I saw my Elianto polishes and thought that they'd go well together.


I usually put the darker color on the tips of my nails but this time I decided to switch things up a bit. Para maiba naman!

I hope you like it!

  19. Yey! Yep, bubbles, I think. The sponge I used was very porous (ran out of nail art sponges and cosmetic wedges).

  28. Thank you dear! Sponging is easier than actually painting your nails with a brush so kering keri sa non-dominant hand :D Hope you try it!
