These are a super easy, quick and fun way to do pastel gradient nails, that anyone can try!
Using a sponge and some white nail polish I wanted to create a sort of ocean spray/wave/speckled texture with these!

I chose my favourite five pastel Barry M colours. Blue, Peach, Lilac, Mint, and Strawberry.
And let them dry.
Next you take a clean dry sponge and literally paint it with white nail varnish.
Try not to use too much or you won't get the right texture.
Then very lightly sponge over the nail.
Leave to dry slightly.
Repeat this but only over the middle and tip of the nail.
And then again finally just on the tip so you get that fading effect.
A quick top coat for shine and they're done!

These are great because you can try so many colour variations. We would love to see your gradient colour combos!

Just send them in :)

    I tried gradient nails but my photos are not very clear. My blog post on them is here: http://robinsparkles1.blogspot.co.uk/2012/07/nail-art-ombre-effect-grandient-sponge.html
