///Cross Hatch Gradient Nail Look///
- Paint half of nail with 1st color. I chose white.
- Paint the other half of nail with 2nd color. I chose black.
- Before the polish dries, take a nail art brush and drag the 2nd color into the 1st color using short hatching strokes.
Use horizontal strokes likes like this: –
Or diagonal strokes likes this: /
Feel free to mix it up!
The longer the strokes, the wider the blended (middle) portion will be. Don’t worry about it being perfect. It’s not supposed to be!
- Once you’ve repeated for all 10 nails, finish off with a top coat to smooth and give a nice shine!
