Nail it for the weekend! A step-by-step guide to Sally Hansen's gradient mani

Step One

"Lay out your colours next to each finger to organise the process. The darkest colour will be on your left thumb, the lightest colour on your right thumb. The second darkest colour will be on your right pinkie while the second lightest colour will be on your left pinkie. This flip-flopping pattern continues down the hand. Prep nails first with a base coat before starting to paint."
