For today's post I tried out the gradient design on stamping plate BM301. I figured if it worked it would be a great "quick fix" gradient, less messy than sponging! For my base colour I used the purple Nails Inc that came free with InStyle magazine a little while back, and for the darker stamping colour I used No7's Violetta. Here is the result:
It is fab! Of course it's not the natural fade you would get with a sponge, but it looks great to me. I would try it again with a foil polish, as Violetta didn't have quite a strong enough pigment for such a solid design.
