Gradient Finger Nails

Are your Finger Nails ready for some FUN?
Here is a great way to dress them up.

Tequila Sunrise

Different shades of the came color nail polish
(we used 5 different shades)
Sponge (Porous)

Paint nails lightest color.

Dab small amount of next darkest color onto sponge.

While sponge is still wet dab lightly onto nail a little above cuticle.
Do all nails.  You might need to add more polish to sponge.

Dab next color onto sponge and dab onto nail a little above last color.

Repeat with each color.  End with darkest color on tips.
Making an Ombre effect.

Let nails dry a little and apply a top clear coat.
If nails look a little choppy apply a glitter top coat like below.

Margarita Nails 

One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor.
