Indian Lacquer Lovers Nail Challenge (#ILLnailChallnege) Week 8- Gradient and Pattern Nails

Hello everyone!!! So I missed the last two challenges but I did wear the mani for the Diwali festival and coincidentally it matched with the theme of the week (yeyyyy!!!). I used the colors which matched the saree I wore for the festival :D

 The colors used are-
1. Pink- Sally Hansen 'Coral Reef'
2. Green- Some local Brand
3. White- Faces 'Snow White
4. Glitter- Kleancolor 'Diamond Pink'
5. Hearts- Kleancolor ' Twinkly Love'

Apply a base coat of your choice and after it dries apply the white polish. The reason I apply white polish before gradating is that the colors get shear when you sponge them and they will not come out as desired if you do not use white base color and so the colors come out come out nicely over a white base (This is my personal experience!!!). After the white color dries, put the pink color and green color over the sponge and sponge lightly over your nails, let it dry and sponge again so that you get a solid color. When the color is still wet, apply a clear polish over it so that the colors mix well and you get a nice gradiated look.  Now let it dry and then on tips apply the glitter polish. You can leave it as such but I applied the hearts to give it some edge. The hearts are not studs but its a polish, yessss polish. It is a polish by Kleancolor in which the different color hearts are in the clear polish, the problem with polish is that the hearts don't come out every time you pull the brush put of the bottle so I literally had to fetch the individual hearts out of the bottle!!! After you are done apply a top coat to seal in your design.

Hope you all liked the simple design, please do leave comment and let me know your take on the design.
