Summery gradient

Back in April I created this funky french mani. The two colours really worked well together so I decided to create a gradient mani using the same colour combo. However, instead of using China Glaze For Audrey I used Color Club's Take Me To Your Chateau as it is very opaque and less likely to be dulled by the coral which I found out is called Oh Naturale.
Transition between colours a lot more seamless IRL.
Gradient manis are very popular at the moment and there are a number of techniques you can use to create the look. The technique that I find works best for me is to paint my nail with the less opaque polish first and let it dry. Then on a sponge (I use cheapy make-up sponges from Poundland) paint the two colours and sponge on the nail.
