- a piece of sponge according to the size of the nail plate or slightly larger, but not too large;
- a pair of cotton buds to remove excess lacquer;
- Acetone or a means for removing nail polish;
- varnishes of two or more shades that will become part of the drawing;

And now we come close to describing howdo a manicure with a sponge. The first step is to cover the prepared nails with a varnish of the primary color. Then you need to wait for it to dry completely - it will be the backdrop for our "watercolor painting". After the first layer of the varnish has completely dried, take a sponge. It should be small, so as not to spoil the skin around the nail hole. By the way, the ideal solution to the problem of how to make a manicure with a sponge will be the use of conventional makeup sponges. They are just the right size and equipped with a comfortable handle.
On the sponge, apply a thin layer of a second color varnish. To remove excess, you can gently blot it with a piece of paper. With light touches, we cover with varnish from the sponge the upper part of the nail. When this layer dries, sponge need to score more polish to get wet and continue towards the end of the plate. The closer to the edge, the more intense the color should be. As a result, you should get a nice transition of shades. After reaching the desired tone, the excess lacquer must be carefully removed with cotton sticks, and after complete drying of the layer covered with varnish or nail special fixative.
So you can do not only a manicure of the same color. After a few training, the rainbow manicure with a sponge will also be up to you. It is only necessary to choose in advance the colors of the varnishes and the sequence of their location on the nail. And if you want to make the transition of colors on the nail smooth, you can proceed as follows. On a flat surface (it is best to take a plate or a saucer) you need to pour two drops of varnishes of different colors next to each other, between which there will be a transition. Then they need to be joined together by a toothpick from the common edge, but not completely mixed. Both of these drops should be soaked with a sponge and gently applied to the nail, covered with a base layer of lacquer. An imperceptible and beautiful transition is ready.
