Grey Gradients

Silver Striped Nail Art

Create a simplified gradient nail with blocked out sections of color.  Since you don't have to worry about the smooth blending of colors, you can mix glitter, shimmer, and cream polishes.  

I used another fun Essie polish from Salon Supply Store. The silver polish used in the middle section, Apres-Chic, is from the Winter Collection. It is a metallic silver with a lot of shimmer!  I use silver a lot, so this polish will definitely be getting a lot of use. :)


Nail Polish
Polish Used:
  • Essie - On a Silver Platter
  • Essie - Apres-Chic
  • Petites Color Fever - Vintage Gray
  • Base and top coats
Other Supplies:
  • Nail vinyls (or you can use striping tape)
  • Silver nail tape

This looks is inspired by a design in the latest issue of Nail It! Magazine.  They used different shades of pink, but I'm more of a grey girl.  To create this look:
  1. Apply the base color with On a Silver Platter by Essie.

  2. Use a nail vinyl or nail tape to section off the base of the nail, and the paint the top portion of the nail with a shiny silver polish like Apres-Chic

  3. Repeat this process, sectioning off the tip, and painting it grey.

  4. Add silver nail tape to divide all the sections.
