My Festive Manicure

Hello Girls,

Hope you had a fun and safe Diwali. Even as I hear the dying sounds of a few crackers going up in the air this morning, I was itching to share a new nail art technique I tried yesterday for my Festive Manicure.

The technique is known as sponging nail art and gives a beautiful gradient / ombre effect on the nails. I have used the following nail colors for creating the manicure and a makeup sponge.

Started out by coating the Colorbar sweet mama nail paint on my nails, I sponged the three colors using a makeup sponge onto my nails, to create a beautiful festive manicure. Finished up with a top coat.

Hope you girls like the manicure, do let me know in the comments below.

Take care...


  1. kumkum, the gradient is as good as it could be..

  3. You have very pretty nails....the entire color combination looks very beautiful.....

  4. lovely look.. can u do a step by step tut... nd how to choose the color combination?? can contrast colors be used?
