Artsy Weds: Sponging

The theme this week is sponging.  Sponging is one of the simplest nail art techniques; it only requires a sponge!  You can use a makeup sponge, eyeshadow applicator or a stipple sponge from the art store.  Simply apply a bit a nail polish on your sponge and stipple onto your nail.  You can use any color scheme to create gradients or any type of effect.  

Here's one of my first attempts at nail art:

Base: Essie Knockout Pout
Sponging: China Glaze Happy Go Lucky 
Stamping: BM21

Have you tried sponging as a nail art technique?

Here's the list off all the Artsy Wednesday participants: 

Michelle - Lab Muffin
Melanie - Nail & Polish 
Jessica - Beauty Gnome
Catrine - Unnaked Nails
Kamen - KAKA Beauty Blog
Emily - Anaccentnail
