There is no video tutorial for this one because I was in my fast-paced experimentation zone. It's essentially the same as the clear to black gradient video tutorial, except just do a white to black base gradient. There's a pic of this step below.
See the streaks in the middle of the nail? That's from the blue jelly dragging the black-to-grey part of the gradient. I didn't let the base gradient dry long enough. That and I'm just using one thin coat of jelly here, so you are bound to see some uneveness as is the case with any jelly polish.
I snapped a pic of my base gradient (pre-cleanup, clearly) before I applied one thin coat of the jellies:

So while this wasn't a complete nail fail, it was an experiment worth trying. These polishes are so versatile that there's not enough hours in the day (or days in the week) for me to try all the possibilities I want to!! Someone pay me to quit my full time job, mmk?
