Pastel gradient with white stripes

The sun is shining and the spring is finally here. To celebrate the warm weather I did a simple and effortless manicure that has everything Spring:

Best thing about the design is that it can be easily done on both hands if you have a thin nail art tape – that way you’ll just apply the tape on a white base and then create the pastel gradient over it using a piece of plastic wrap. Unfortunately I didn’t have the tape so I did the gradient and then I painted white stripes over it, but that wasn’t hard either :)

It turned out to be a mono brand manicure as I used 4 Essie nail polishes to create the look:

  • Essie Blanc – a white nail polish
  • Essie Lilacism – a soft lilac creme
  • Essie Lapiz of Luxury – a light blue creme
  • Essie Bottle Service – a pink nail polish

The base white color here is Essie Blanc which formula can be described as a pure white creme. The stripes are also painted with Essie Blanc and a thin #1 nail art brush.

      Благодарю :) На самом деле все очень легко делается. Техника та же, что и с губкой, только вместо губки используется кусочек полиэтиленовой пленки.

  8. The end effect is eye-catching and lovely because of the colors you used!
