How to: Pink Gradient Nails

For this week's Monday Manicure, I decided to actually do a "design" of sorts. I made these easy gradient nails. Follow the jump to find more info.

Here are the three colors I used for this gradient mani:

  • Deborah Lippmann Before He Cheats
  • Essie Haute as Hello
  • OPI Koala Bear-y

I started with Before He Cheats, which was from my recent Birchbox haul. It's a milky light pink color that acts as a great base for additional colors. It's also a perfect color for when you just want a subtle pale hue on your nails.

I applied 3 coats to make an opaque solid color all over my nails.

After it fully dried, I took Haute as Hello and Koala Bear-y and quickly painted them side by side onto a cosmetic wedge, like this:

I pressed the wedge onto my nail to create a blended gradient design. I did that for each nail.

Once it dried, I added my favorite top coat and that was it!
