Gradient nail art designs sit in the middle of the arthritis friendly scale. These easy nail art techniques require a sponge and the light dabbing motion that could affect the wrist. Otherwise, gradient nail designs are very simple to do. If you are not in a flare and are feeling particularly strong…this is another technique to add to your arsenal!
I adore gradients especially because they take two unlikely colors and blend them together beautifully.
I recently went through my polish collection and found some favorite Barry M polishes hidden in my stash and I had to use them. (FYI USA readers — Barry M is a UK drugstore brand that is amazing…unfortunately it is extremely difficult to get stateside.)
The gradient I made was looking slightly bare so I added some fun Pueen water decals on top. And yes, water decals are the most arthritis friendly nail art technique ever.
