Extend-A-Mani - Illamasqua Gradient

Nothing to Disclose
*These products are Cruelty Free 

I'm back with another "Extend-A-Mani" post for you. This method is my go-to and the quickest and easiest of all my "easy way out" manicures.

All it takes is about 5 minutes, a make-up sponge and a coordinating color for the mani you're already wearing!

Continued after the jump...

Put a stripe of your base mani color at the top and a stripe of your coordinating color right underneath it on the sponge. Then just pat pat pat until you're happy with the look! Use remover and a brush to clean up around the nail and you're done!


What do you think? Something you'd try? Something you do all the time already?

If you enjoyed this post, please take a second to "like" it! Thanks!
