Gray/purple sponge mani

I use sponges to clean my kitchen and bathroom, but on my nails?
Sponging is one of the hottest trends in the polish world right now and I recently did a design using the popular method.
Here are the supplies I used:

Supplies included: a broken piece of sponge, Revlon's Hazy, essence's Breakthrough, topcoat and basecoat.

Directions were easy-peasy.
After my basecoat and two coats of Hazy dried, I dabbed a little bit of Breakthrough onto my nails to give them that sponge affect. I did this about two times.
Then, I applied the topcoat when everything was dried and had my sponge nails.
To jazz the look up a little, I added black funky french tips using Borghese' Stellare Noire.
I like the look and predict more sponge manis in my future!

Have you ever done a sponge mani? What are you wearing on your tips and toes?
FTC Disclosure: I previously paid for the products with my own funds.


  1. Hello, Jennifer, I read you have JAPANESE CHERRY BLOSSOM POWDER RADIANT, where did you buy it?

    1. Hi there. Talk about a blast from the past! I bought that from Bath & Body Works like two years ago. It was on clearance, I believe. Not sure if you get Bath & Body Works there but maybe you should check amazon or even ebay. Not sure. Good luck. Let me know if you find one.
