Purple Flying Dragon

Hey everyone, I'm finally back! My computer is up and running again. Since I've still been painting my nails regularly, I should have enough content to post up as soon as possible too. More updates on my life, I've passed my driving test yay!! And I turned 19 last week :) I'm starting university on the 12th of August which means I will be working less and can definitely paint my nails more since school doesn't have a 'nail-code'!

Today, I have something new to show you. It's a gradient! Remember, I bought a set of make-up sponges a few weeks ago? Well, I've finally put them to good use!

I started with OPI A Grape Fit.


After a day (I wasn't intending to do a gradient but I got bored with the nail colour haha), I sponged on China Glaze Flying Dragon (Neon)



I think it looks quite nice! For my first attempt. I found the sponging up and down hand movement a bit awkward or maybe I just need some practice huh? It definitely looks better from far though! The second photo's brighter cos I wanted to show the gradient more colour-accurately and it somehow ended up making my fingers look whiter LOL.

Now, that I've got past my first gradient! I can't wait to do more!! What do you think of this one? Any tips on gradients or sponging to offer me? :)
