Gradient stripes

I got this effect by painting my nails in the base colour, carefully sticking thin strips of striping tape over my nails, and then sponging a gradient on top in the usual way. It takes a while to do the tape but I think the effect is pretty cool! The polishes used in this mani are Barry M Mint Green, Accessorize Apricot Crush, and Nails Inc St John’s Wood & OMP!
