Gradient sponging over nail tape.....  It's brilliant! I saw this type of mani on the nailXchange, and I knew I had to try it! 

I started with three coats of  Mei Mei's Signature SueSa Nail Polish S02 (you can see my review of the polish here). Photo below shows one coat of top coat.


I applied nail tape in a random pattern.


I sponged over the nail tape with Mei Mei's Signature SueSa Nail Polish S02 and ManGlaze Matte is Murder. I then removed the tape. I didn't add any top coat because I liked the matte finish. 

I love this mani! BUT.... it was hard as heck to do clean up! Silver glitter was everywhere. =)

Looking at it I can imagine cleanup would've been tough but I really like it. I saw this idea from nailXchange too and I've been looking to try it. I just need to buy some sponges first.

I love this nail polish anyway hit it looks so great as a fade. I really need to get some tape though because this looks lovely :)

Wow. Great manicure. I've never heard of gradient stamps before, so that's something I'll have to invest in. :-)
