Gradient sponge tool from BeautyBigBang
Today I’m going to show you a sponging tool I got from Beauty Big Bang recently in return for an honest review. Beauty Big Bang is a web store that sells all kinds of stuff for nails and nail art and they ship internationally. The tool is listed as “Double-ended Nail Gradient Shading Pen Sponge Head Nail Tool”.
The tool looks like this, and you can find it here:
I wasn’t really in the mood for a gradient so I did something else. I used the tool to sponge an effect polish down the middle of a manicure. I poured out a bit of polish on a piece of plastic (the middle of a nail wheel, actually) and then dipped the tool in the polish before I transferred it onto the middle of my nails. It was really easy and pretty precise too. I didn’t mask my cuticles before I sponged and I managed to keep the shimmer and glitter on the nails.
Here’s what it all ended up looking like.
I also make a metallic stripe down the middle. I really liked the effect that gave.
This is what the sponge looked like after my work.
I cleaned the sponge tool up with nail polish remover before I took this last picture. I do believe it’s possible to buy refill sponge heads but it is possible to clean them and reuse them, so they’re not one time only.
|Polishes I used: |
Sally Hansen: Fairy Teal, Kiko Candy Split #002, Models Own: Chrome Green
