NOTD // Ombre Nails Dip Dye

I'm currently stuck in bed with a stomach bug...my birthday is tomorrow...just my luck, I needed something to amuse me for a short while and to brighten my mood. So I thought I'd have a go at the ombre|dip dye nail hype. It's my first go and after this goes up I'm off to tidy them more. Here's my little how to. Let me know what you think?
What I used:
Models Own - Wah Nail Art Pen - White
Ciaté - Paint Pots - Jelly Bean (pink)
Ciaté - Paint Pots - Purple Sherbet (lilac)
MUA - Love Hearts - U & I (yellow)
Sally Hansen - Diamond Strength - Flawless (clear)

How To:
Paint your nails with a base of white, so the colours stand out more
Cut sponge to fit the size of your nails roughly
Paint polishes onto the sponge in stripes, any colours, as many as you like
Then dab the sponge onto your nail, to cover all the nail roll the sponge across
Then tidy up the mess around your nails, with que tips & remover, it's a pain
Once you're happy & they're dry, apply your favourite top coat
