Edgy Gradient

After seeing this picture following Fall 2012 NYFW, I decided I wanted to try this beautiful gradient on my own nails using black and a brighter color.  I was however hesitant to replicate it immediately as it was spring and it didn't seem very springy to me.
For this manicure I used a base coat to prevent from discoloration or staining.  Next, I followed that with 2 coats of Sinful Colors Black on Black on all of my nails.  After that dried, I sponged Barielle Surf's Up on the tips of my nails.  It's quite simple.  I love the contrast between black and the bright color sponged on the tips.

I would love to see this with any of my favorite colors for fall: navy, cobalt, teal, rust, ochre, olive, and oxblood.

How do you change up your manicure/nail art for fall?


  1. I love that combination! The blue really pops against the black!
