YouTube Nail Art Week - Gradient Stripes

Hi guys!

Welcome to Day 2 of YouTube Week! I chose today's design because it has a really cool effect, but it's super easy to do. In fact, all you need is four polishes from the same colour family ranging from dark to light. No special nail art tools required to recreate this design!

This design comes from YouTube user xoJahtna and her tutorial for gradient stripes.

I love green polish, so I was tempted to do the same as she did and create a green striped gradient. But I decided to switch it up a bit, so I went with a neutral colour palette instead.

First I started with a base of Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme on all of my nails. Then using the exact method she demonstrated in her tutorial, I created the gradient stripes using China Glaze Concrete Catwalk, Essence Romeo and Sinful Colors Snow Me White.

I really like how simple, yet visually appealing this mani is. I'm definitely going to have to try it again using some different colour families. I'm thinking a blue one would be really nice! And purple!

Thanks for looking!
