How to create your own blue gradient nails.

Create Your Own Blue Gradient Nails.


Dab some blue nail polish on a white piece of paper using polish brush.

Dab some clear polish and mix it with the blue till you get a really light blue. That will be your first coat.

Mix another blue with clear nail polish till you get one shade darker than your first coat. Than, start the second coat from the middle of your nail bed.

Your third coat would be just the blue polish. That should be applied at the tip of your nail.

Use your blue glider nail polish as your last coat. Lightly brush the glitter polish and add more glitter polish at the top half and most at the tip. Hope that makes sense.

Wait to dry. Than, add clear coat to give a glossy finish. Voila! You have gradient blue nails. It does require some practice. Took me 2 tries. 😉
