That is a very interesting way to apply the product.

I would think though it would waste a fair bit due to the sponge soaking up the product to some degree, at least with using the brush direct to the nail and then back into the bottle again, there is no wastage but a brush would not give the same effect though.

It did look lovely.

Hi there D

Pick two colours that are similar, makes your life easier Wink

I find it's all how you hold your brush. Lay down your first colour, hold the brush at a 45 degree angle. / - like that. This way their will be a little extra polish in the area where the two colours will meet. With the colour your fading into it, hold your brush completely parallel to the nail. Make sure you've wiped the brush off of excess colour this time so it fades easily.

This way, you've created the area where the fade meets on the first coat. The second coat, you can just focus on deepening the two colours but not faffing about with the faded area.

You could also always just take the two colours and mix a smidgen together so you have a perfect in between colour and then use the three colours for your fade Wink

Hope this helps! D

Hello,

You've had some great advice, but I had a client who happened to want a fade, so I went ahead and did a Step by Step. These were done with a gel sponge. The colors are Izzy Wizzy, Up in the Blue and Deep Sea.

I started with a fill, This was a new client, I didn't burn her Confusedhock:

Apply Izzy Wizzy to the whole nail. Cure

Create a palate with Up in the Blue and Deep Sea

With a Gel sponge, apply Up in the Blue. Cure

Apply Deep Sea, Cure

Go back over with the two colors to intesify and further blend

I've tried with different sponges, and it's fun you can get like different effects, I love the sponges that I bought for washing dishes they are cheap and work like a charm, just cut them in little pieces. :wink: Smile

Yes, you can use any sponge. The gel wipe, that I used here will deposit more color. Where a make-up sponge will deposit less and give a less textured effect. Just depends on what look you are going for.
