Zigzag Gradient

After how popular my last vertical gradient proved to be, I decided to try it again with different colours and an accent nail...because I can rarely resist an accent nail!

For the vertical gradient, I started with a white base, then sponged on the colours using a make-up sponge. I used Illamasqua Caress, a pale cornflour blue (sadly discontinued!) and Illamasqua Cameo, a creamy periwinkle blue. For the accent nail, I started with a white base, then stuck on some zigzag stickers from Nail Vinyls. I sponged a regular horizontal gradient over the vinyls, removed them and finished with top coat. Vertical gradients are a pain to do when compared with horizontal ones, but I'm becoming obsessed!



  1. This combination is gorgeous! I love the accent nail too! I've never though of doing vertical gradients before but I think I might have to after seeing yours! :)

  2. Vertical gradients are definitely harder to do, but the end result is so worth it and you did such an amazing job! Gorgeous!

  3. I love this post. Your photos are amazing. What camera do you use?
