Pastel gradient

Hello everyone. This is going to be a pretty quick post. So I have done multiple (failed) attempts at gradients. I came to the conclusion that I just didn't have the proper sponges for it so I went on eBay and ordered some sponge wedges. The result was my first nice looking gradient!


As you can see, it's not perfect. But I thought it looked super cute anyhow. I used two coats of Essie Blanc as my base colour because I thought it would make the colours pop a bit more, but the white still shines through a bit. Maybe this would be fixed by using the lightest colour as a base instead of white? I suppose that's something to try another time.

I used NYC Lavender Cupcake and Essence That's What I Mint for the colours. I think they go quite well together, and gradients with cremes are usually my favourites.


All in all I'm pretty happy with how these turned out and from a distance, the gradient looked perfect. :D
