I normally use the same colours for gradient nails, going from light to dark, but I’ve never tried it with red. I have to say that I love how this looks!!
I started with a base of red, OPI Over and Over a Gwen, I then sponged on China Glaze Prey Tell which is a dark vampy red.
I added the triangle charms I got from Sea Sells Seashells and then finished with a coat of Seche Vite, the best top coat ever, the top coat really helps smooth out the gradient.
