It's all about ME

I tried a sponging method I have seen on a few blogs- I may not be remembering the method right but here goes and a silent thank-you to the ladies that have done a tutorial on this!

2 Coats of NYC French mani White, and then the colors I used were:
Catrice Forget Me Not
Essence Choose Me!

I painted the two colors right on the cosmetic sponge and rolled the sponge over the nail-MESSY-But gorgeous!
This was stunning in the sun and out of the sun, actually. A co-worker said she kept looking at my nails because they made her happy-that's a win in my book!

Essence CM showed up more Aqua than in the looks like a lovely green in the bottle, but sponged over the white...aqua. I still loved it!
This was messy-no other way to say it-especially with that darker color near the cuticles. I plan on trying scotch tape next time, because the finished look was worth it.
Have a good evening!

It's beautiful :)
If you cut the sponge smaller (to fit the nail/a little smaller, it's not messy. Personally I sponge a color at the time, just using a corner of the sponge - no mess at all :)

Maria-So glad you like it! I normally use the corner of a little piece of sponge also...this was so fast (except for clean-up!) and the effect was so even...I thought I might try it again with the tape. Thanks for commenting!
