Black & White Challenge: Day 8 ~ Sponging

I love a sponged gradient – I think it’s a quick and easy way to add some interest to your nails. For today’s theme I decided to do a gradient French and add black details.  My design is heavily inspired by a beautiful image I first saw on Pinterest. You can see it here.

I started with three coats of China Glaze Innocence, which is a lovely, sheer pink, perfect for a French manicure. Then I sponged white acrylic paint over the tips, and painted black “flowers” with a detail brush and black acrylic paint.
