Gradient & Stamping Tutorial

Hey lovelies,

How is everyone doing today? I'm doing alright. The first day of my class wasn't bad it was just the basics you know? All that fun introduce yourself stuff lol. Here's the tutorial for the Gradient & Stamping nails that I recently did. I hope everyone likes it!



Step-By-Step Instructions:
Gradient


  1. Apply base coat
  2. Apply base colour (I usually use white to help the colors pop) and allow to dry thoroughly (or you can use a fast drying top coat to assist with this)
  3. Use Bliss Kiss Simply Peel Latex Barrier (or whatever you may have available) around cuticles to help with clean up
  4. Paint four colors of your choice on a latex free cosmetic wedge as shown above
  5. Sponge onto nail
  6. Repeat steps 4-5 until you have desired opacity 
  7. Remove Simply Peel Latex Barrier (or whatever you used)
  8. Remove any excess polish from around the cuticles using a brush gently dipped in pure acetone
  9. Apply a fast drying top coat and allow to dry
Stamping

  1. Paint polish on to desired stamping plate image as shown above
  2. Using an old card (can be any type of card) quickly spread polish across image
  3. Quickly pick up image using stamper
  4. Apply image onto nail using a rolling motion
  5. Clean up any excess of the image using a brush lightly dipped in pure acetone
  6. Apply your fast drying top coat

I was going to break down the geometric or triangular image that is on my nails but that is pretty self explanatory! What did you all think of this design? Have you done stamping or any freehand nail art?
