Before I get started...I realise this is a fashion blog, not a beauty blog. But, I also believe that accessories and beauty are just as much a part of fashion as the outfit you decide to wear and the shoes you match with it. You can dress up a plain white tee & jeans even just with a bright pop of nail polish, a statement necklace & your favourite heels!I posted an image I found on Pinterest to my instagram of some 'gradient painted' nails & got such a positive response I thought I would try it myself. I then posted my attempt & have had so many comments & people asking how I did it I thought I would do a blog to show you how easy it actually is! And trust me, if I can do it, you can do it!
I will write under each image so it is easier to follow...
1. To start with, I file my nails to shape & paint the bottom colour. Because this layer needs to be completly dry, I wait until the next day to create the gradient.
5. Paint a layer of top coat & you're done! The top coat makes an amazing difference & really blends the look. If you need to, dip a cotton bud into the nail polish remover to remove any excess sponged around the nails.
-Wearing: Lavender Love knit available online this week. 'Love' and 'hearts' small rings available soon. ASOS floral pants.
I would love to see some examples once you have given this look a try! Tag #unwrittenclothing on instagram so we can all see your gradients!
You will be so impressed at how easy this is, and it really does look like you have gone to a lot of effort! (It's also easy to sponge over any chips you get without having to paint the whole nail. An easy look with low maintenance, what more could we ask for!?)
