My First Gradient

Today I have for you my very first gradient ever. I absolutely love gradient manis but I have always been too afraid to try one myself. I just don't understand how people get them so perfect! I definitely need a lot of practice but at least with these results I want to try again instead of give up. For my first time I am pretty happy with the results and it was a fun learning experience. For this look I started with three coats of Zoya Sharon as a base and then sponged on several layer of Cult Nails Feel Me Up. For the stamping I used Bundle Monster plate 318. For top coat I used Cult Nails Wicked Fast. I don't think this is the best to use with stamping because it smeared my index and middle finger. With the other two I was super gentle trying not to ruin them too. This is my first time using Wicked Fast with stamping so maybe I just need to be more gentle or wait even longer before I top coat even though I waited close to five minutes. I am still super happy with this look though and the smudges are barely even noticeable in person the camera just captures everything!


  1. Does not look like your first attempt. great job and i love the stamping on top :)

  2. Came out great - way better than my first gradient attempt did!
