Nail That Technique Challenge Week 2 - Syrup Gradient: Nail Art and Tutorial


This week's challenge prompt is Syrup Gradient. Last year, I did a manicure with this technique(see here) and I loved how easy and non messy gradient technique it is. Moreover it requires no tool as the gradient effect is created using the nail polish brush itself.

 I first saw this technique on Chalkboard Nails and saw the tutorial on Rebecca Likes Nails. I did single color gradient previously and this time i decided to go with two colors. I loved how this manicure turned out. Have a look yourself: (go till the end of the post to check out video tutorial).

Here's the syrup gradient base for the nail art:

I used El- Corazon jelly "neon" polish nos. 423/254 and 423/256 for the gradient. (swatched here).

I stamped this base with an image from sugar bubble SB-025 stamping plate using konad black stamping polish.
