Neutral Gradient

Oh, I just love gradients! They're rather easy and always look fantastic! I think that the color combination I did today would be entirely work appropriate! 

The first thing I did was polish my nails a neutral color! Zoya's new Naturel Collection is full of amazing work appropriate nudes! I chose to go with Rue, a gorgeous blush colored polish.

I taped off my nails to prevent a ton of clean-up:

Next, I ripped up a makeup sponge and held a piece with tweezers. I dipped the sponge into a blob of Zoya Ziv and dabbed it at the top of my nails near my cuticle.

 I always am heavy handed at the cuticle line and then I move downward as the polish isn't as heavy on the sponge. I keep working with it until I'm satisfied with the gradient! And you can always add more polish to the sponge. Enjoy! :)
