Gradient Purple Striped Nails – Get the Look

Gradient Purple Striped Nails

This nailart design was inspired by another Pinterest post.  It was created by blogger Lindsey from  Of course my nailart doesn’t look quite as gorgeous as hers, but this is my interpretation, and I was pretty happy with the way they came out.

Here is what I used to acheive this look.

Get the look:

As always, I prepped my nails with one of my fave products, Avon Nail Expert Ridge a Filling base coat to get a smooth base.  I started off painting all my nail with the lightest shade.  I went ahead and painted the entire nail so I wouldn’t have to do a second coat of colors.  Next, I took the next lightest color and painted a thick, horizontal stripe in the middle of my nail. Lastly, I painted the darkest shade and painted a thick, horizontal stripe on the tip of my nail.  After my nails were dry, I cut strips of silver nailart tape, (I would recommend cutting  the strips before painting, though).  This part did take some time, I used tweezers to take one strip and placed it on the place where the colors changed, using two strips per nail.  I also used the tweezers to secure the silver strip onto the nail.  I then used nail clippers to clip any excess tape and the tweezers again, to secure the tape to the sides of my nail.  Finally, I used a clear top coat.

Of course there are variations of this nailart that you can try.  You can use a different color scheme, you can paint each nail a different shades of purple and use this technique as an accent nail, or use this as the accent nail and paint the rest, only one of the other shades.
