step 1: apply one coat of essie here to stay base coat. this is especially important if your nails are prone to staining - think of it as a protective layer from deeper colors! 

step 2: paint two coats of wishing on a star. allow a few minutes to dry. 

step 3: place a few drops of space out on a piece of aluminum foil. dip the corner of a triangle sponge into the polish and gently pat onto your nail bed starting at the free edge. work your way down the nail blending the two colors together. you want pink to be most prominent at the tip and to gradually blend into the blue. repeat until you have a seamless gradient. 

step 4: next apply gel.setter top coat to smooth out any texture created by the sponge. this will also help blend the colors together!
