Aussie Nails Monday - 17/12 Sponging

So another Aussie Nails Monday post going up later than expected. :( Eeeek. I'm sorry! Today's post was delayed because...well, to be honest, I couldn't be bothered. LOL. It was a really nice day so I sat outside in the sun most of the day! And then I took a chunk of skin off my thumb and sliced my middle finger, boooo! :( But that will not stop me from doing some hopefully cool sponged nails for ANM!

For my sponged mani I used two coats of Essie's Mint Candy Apple and waited for it to dry. If I were doing just a solid colour mani, it would definitely need a third coat because it was a bit patchy/streaky (as Essie pastels tend to be) but I was going to sponge over it so I didn't bother.
I then used a kitchen sponge and OPI Pink Friday for my gradient. I use this technique for my gradients and it works really well for me.
I added Emily de Molly's Black And White Love Affair over the gradient! I think it looks so cute!



I wish I hadn't changed my nail shape back to squares. :( I usually don't mind my nails no matter what shape they are and I'm all "it's okay, they'll grow back" but right now I hate them. :( *sigh*

Have a nice day/night!

Don't forget to check out the blogs/accounts of the gorgeous ladies joining me for Aussie Nails Monday:
