"Stainy" Gradient With Gold Accent

A no name nail art technique. The "black to white" gradient effect on the smoked purple base was created by doing irregular strokes with hardly any nail polish on the brush. Finally, the design was stamped using a gold stamping polish. I decided to use an old stamping plate by Essence, which I don't normally use because it makes it impossible to transfer the designs completely, but this time I kinda liked that "fading" effect.
