Revlon Blue Lagoon Gradient

This is my first time trying a gradient of colors on one nail, and I think I could use some practice making it look more blended, but I still like it. :)

I started this by putting on two coats of Revlon Blue Lagoon. I added a coat of Seche Vite before I sponged on my other colors, so that it would dry faster.

To sponge on the colors, I used a makeup sponge and actually cut it in half so that the width would be closer to the size of my nail. I made less of a mess on my skin this way and I used a new sponge for each color.

I put some polish down on my palette and dipped my sponge into it, dabbing it until there was a pretty even amount on the sponge. Then I started to dab it onto my nail, and I took the color about 3/4 of the way down with my first color - not going as far down for each of the following colors. The following pictures are in the order that I applied the colors, and the polish I used under each picture.

To smooth everything out, I added a coat of Seche Vite. Thanks for looking!
