I was in the mood for some pink on my nails, but since I couldn’t decide which polish to use, I used three different shades for a simple brushed (and distressed?) gradient:
This was a quick and easy way to get a gradient-like effect on my nails – which I love – but without the mess of a regular sponged gradient. I just painted two coats of “free hugs” and then used a small nail art brush to roughly paint on the darker shades. I tried to load the brush with as little polish as possible, to also get a slightly distressed look and feel.
I usually like my gradients neat and tidy, but I was surprised how much I liked this on my nails. I definitely will try this with other colors. 🙂
