Black and White Gradient! (Challenge Day 7!)

As most of you know by this point, I have been working on a 31 Day Challenge hosted by Painting Outside The Lines. Its been a lot of fun and I've been learning a lot of new techniques!

Day 7 was for Black & White Nails so I decided to take a second shot at a sponge gradient. (tearing pieces from the triangle make-up sponges, holding with tweezers dab the raw or rough end into your paint and sponge away!)

On this one I used a base of China Glaze Liquid Leather and sponged my tips with OPI Alpine Snow. I wasn't too sold on this result as it felt too separated. So I added a drop of the black into my leftover puddle of white to make this soft grey and sponged the middle. I them topped it off with NYC Matte Me Crazy for a softer look. I was very happy with my final result! What do you think? Have you tried this method?
