Californails January Nail Art Challenge 2014: Fresh Ocean Breeze

Hey everyone! So one of my new year's resolutions is to do more nail art and more nail tutorials so you guys can join in with me. Here is one for January 2014 hosted by the talented Californails. Today's design was with the theme FRESH so I created my design with what came to mind as fresh, the ocean breeze and this is my interpretation of that. It's basically a teal to white stripe gradient. 



The main color used is Rimmel London Marine Blue nail polish; 2 coats as the base. It's a soft shimmery teal blue. 
Other than that I used a teal and white acrylic paints from Apple Barrel and mixed them together from pure teal to pure white to create variations of the teal for the striper gradient. The rest is pretty simple; you just use your striper brush and light motions to add strokes from dark to light but just a little bit lower for each shade.


Here is the pictorial to help you understand what I did. You can add any amount of shades of your color for the gradient but must have at least 3 for good contrast of light to dark.



For those of you wanting to join in the challenge, here is the original poster with all the dates and theme. Stay tuned for my next challenge: Sparkles.
