Abstract Winter Inspired: Prepare 2 to 4 nail art colors, one being a metallic (ZT.0 or white (No.1) . This will give the look a pop of dimension. After applying a neutral color for the base (or a clear coat if you prefer the negative space look) and letting it dry for minute, we move onto a dry brush dabbing technique with the nail art colors.
Wipe most of the polish off of the brush before dabbing the remaining polish randomly to one side of the nail. Repeat this step with all the nail art colors until you’ve created your desired cascading side gradient.
