VIDEO TUTORIAL AT THE END OF THE POST!
The first gradient layer, which is referred to as a 'round gradient' or 'circle gradient' was inspired by @banicured_'s technique I first saw on Instagram. I then used straight Nail Vinyls to make an X in the centre, and then added four corner gradients in each quadrant using a corner of a makeup sponge, but the colours going in the opposite direction as the first gradient layer. Not gonna lie, this was tricky, and I did have some issues with polish buildup which was mostly due to my inaccuracy of placing the original round gradient middle dark section exactly in the middle of my nail.
