VIDEO TUTORIAL AT THE END OF THE POST!
I originally contemplated doing all nails a reciprocal gradient, but for whatever reason I told myself it might be too complicated and I was worried the gradient sponging would bleed through the fishnet nail shields from Love, Angeline seeing as the lines are quite thin - thinner than striping tape for sure. But to my pleasant surprise there was no bleeding whatsoever! By this point I had already done three nails with black overlay. Now I know for next time, that when something seems impossible, just try it anyway and worry about failing later :D
The reciprocal gradient accent nails turned out to be my fav! Do you agree?
A England polishes are just so gorgeous and captivating - I don't own any other holos this opaque or with such depth to them.
And of course featuring my favourite one-coater black creme, 'Nevermore' from Cult Nails. It never fails me!
Given the size of these nail shields I was able to use one 'shield' for two nails simply but cutting them in half down the middle.
