    With all the gradients going around I figured I’d add my own to the mix. They were inspired by this fun drip dye t shirt tutorial. First I did a sponge gradient using China Glaze Go Go Pink and OPI Big Hair…Big Nails over Wet n Wild French White Creme. Then I stippled over that with China Glaze High Hopes. Unfortunately the gradient underneath doesn’t come out too much in the picture, but I still really like they way turned out!

    I made a tutorial! I hope this is something that possibly helps people, because I know some people said they wanted to try out my stippling gradient nails.
Okay, so words to go with the pictures:
First you need to paint your nails with which ever color you like. In my original nails I chose a black base, but I like white much better. Then, using a tiny dotting tool (or a needle, possibly a toothpick, I used a #18/0 spotter brush) make a bunch of dots near the tip of your nail, so many that barely any of the base color shows through. You can use nail polish for this, but I chose to use acrylic paint. After that keep working in sections, using less and less dots and making the sections ever so slightly bigger until you reach your cuticle. If you have long nails you could probably stop before the cuticle, or you could just make the sections bigger. I like to do four sections, but you could do more or less depending on how gradual you want the gradient. 
If there’s any confusion please let me know and I’ll try to clarify!
