Spring gradient with a twist

Hey all,

The last part of my Born Pretty Store reviews for this month. It took me a while to get around to this. Not for lack of trying but for lack of success in producing a manicure I could actually show ye. I was sent a pack of 3 small sponges to do some gradients / nail art with. I personally love the way gradients look but like a lot of things I'm no good at actually doing them on my own nails.  I think this was a pretty successful run even with the huge smudge on my pinky finger. I can't even remember how it happened but I know I wasn't best pleased with it at the time :P

For the gradient I started with 3 coats of Boots 17 Sweet Kisses which is my all time favourite shade of pink. The formula isn't amazing and it can take a while to dry but I adore the colour so I put up with it. Then using the sponge from Born Pretty I added on Barry M Berry ice cream to the bottom half of my nails. I then marked off the nail using striping tape and added on Barry m Rasperry. This was to ensure the gradient would be noticeable (the colours are very light so it was a bit hard to see the gradient). Then just for the sake of it I put on a little stud in the middle of each nail. I topped it all off with a topcoat and that's all there is to it!

For a pack of 3 sponges on Born Pretty you'd normally pay $1.99 but they are offer at the moment for $0.99 so it's a pretty good deal!
