Lust After My Nails

Fade Effect
I decided to try something new!
For this effect you need:
- a small sponge
- pastel nail polishes (chose 3 or 4)
- white nail polish 
- q-tips
- plastic plate or old cd case cover
Step one: apply your base coat and wait approx. 5 minutes 
Step two: apply 2 coats of white nail polish. this will make your light colours stand out! allow the polish to dry for about 10 minutes
Step three: after nails have dried, pour a small amount of the first colour you want to use on the plastic plate (I chose to do the light orange colour first)
Step four: carefully dip your sponge into the nail polish. dap excess polish on the side of the plate. then sponge your colour over 1/3 of your nail.
Step five: repeat step 3 and 4 until you’ve used all the colours you’ve picked. (note: save your darker colours for last). allow for the nails to dry for approx. 10 minutes.
Step six: once your nails have dried, apply your top coat. this will blend the colours together, creating the fade effect!
Step seven: clean up the area around your nails with nail polish remover (or pure acetone) and q-tips. remember to use a cuticle oil after to prevent dry skin ! (I use coconut oil but you can use whatever you like)
you can also wait for your nails to dry completely and apply a glitter top coat to really make your nails stand out :)
