Does anyone remember the gorgeous gradient zebra design from the Bundle Monster Contest awhile back? I LOVED it. It was definitely one of my favorites in the competition. And recently, I found out who made it (the lovely Rebecca), and that she posted a tutorial on how she did it! I couldn't wait to try this out! I decided to do mine using some STUNNING pastels from Zoya:
Now, I didn't have a chance to take a picture of just the gradient, which was probably a good thing, because trust me, it didn't look that good on its own. I have to practice this technique more. I think I'm just a little too heavy handed to get a subtle gradient. I used Flora as a base coat and then sponged on Malia on the top two-thirds of the nail, and then Yummy on the top one-third. Then I stamped the full zebra image from BM 223 on top with Konad black polish. Here is the final result:
Thanks to Rebecca Likes Nails for posting the tutorial! I think there are so many different designs you can do with a gradient base and then a full stamp over top.
