Bleeding Blue

Tonight's nail art comes straight off of ColourLovers. It's a gorgeous gradient, but it's called melting. It actually looks like it is melting, and so do my nails.


The colors used were Load (Illamasqua), Rock-a-Guy Blue and Blue Sky's the Limit (Sation).

This was a really easy design to do. Just paint your base color, add messy stripes of your second color about half way down your nail, and then add some more on top of that near the top of the nail. Easy and effortless.

EDIT: 8/26/12 You can easily try this yourself. Follow this new tutorial for the exact steps and tools you'll need.

    1. I used the small red brush seen here. It's a great, cheap set that I use on almost all my designs. If you don't already have a set or are looking to replace yours, consider that one. It's cheap, the shipping is free, and you can get 10% off your order with the coupon code C10X31.
