It's the last week of the #busygirlnails Spring Nail Art Challenge! Thank you to everyone who participated! The last theme is a gradient and this manicure is actually the one I did for my friend's wedding last Saturday. It's a very subtle gradient using Essie's Better Together and Blanc

Thank you once again @beautybyarielle, @fiercemakeupandnails, @mirandasmakeup, and @marijonails for co-hosting this challenge! It's always fun doing this with you guys! Don't forget to post your manicures using the hashtag #busygirlnails and tag us so we could see your works of art!

  1. Nice subtle gradient! Would be a good twist on an office appropriate mani.

  4. I really love how "delicate" and subtle this mani looks, I couldn't tell it was a gradient at first glance which makes me love it even more!

    1. Thanks, Stephanie! I just used a makeup sponge and dabbed on the white polish to the tips, but also applied the base color to the sponge next to the white so they blended better together. Ooh maybe I can put together a step by step if this didn't make? Hopefully I'll have time!

  10. we love ombre nails, and this one is definitely a more subtle one, but one we think would be perfect for spring!! We're going to have to try this colour combo out too.
