Nail Art Weekly Project #1: Black and White Gradient Nails

WEEK 1: AN ITEM OF CLOTHING OR AN OUTFIT
Welcome to the first week of the Nail Art Weekly Project! It's a challenge run by Danni over at Gingerbread Smiles - be sure to check out her blog to see who else is taking part! The challenge itself is pretty straightforward - 5 weeks, 5 themes, 5 nail art looks. The theme for the first week is an item of clothing or an outfit, so I picked out one of my favourite shirts (from good old Primark) and got to work! 

I thought a monochrome gradient would be a fun way to recreate the grey smoky design. It was my first time trying gradients but thankfully the sponge technique isn't too hard to pick up! The polishes are Barry M Nail Paint in Black and White, over a base of MUA Nail Polish in Koala Bear

I'm so happy with how this turned out - I think I'll try another more colourful gradient in the coming weeks!

Have you tried gradients before? What's your favourite colour combination?
