Gradient sponge tool from BeautyBigBang

Gradient sponge tool from BeautyBigBang

Today I’m going to show you a sponging tool I got from Beauty Big Bang recently in return for an honest review. Beauty Big Bang is a web store that sells all kinds of stuff for nails and nail art and they ship internationally. The tool is listed as “Double-ended Nail Gradient Shading Pen Sponge Head Nail Tool”.

The tool looks like this, and you can find it here:

I wasn’t really in the mood for a gradient so I did something else. I used the tool to sponge an effect polish down the middle of a manicure. I poured out a bit of polish on a piece of plastic (the middle of a nail wheel, actually) and then dipped the tool in the polish before I transferred it onto the middle of my nails. It was really easy and pretty precise too. I didn’t mask my cuticles before I sponged and I managed to keep the shimmer and glitter on the nails.

Here’s what it all ended up looking like.

I also make a metallic stripe down the middle. I really liked the effect that gave.

This is what the sponge looked like after my work.

I cleaned the sponge tool up with nail polish remover before I took this last picture. I do believe it’s possible to buy refill sponge heads but it is possible to clean them and reuse them, so they’re not one time only.

Polishes I used:
Sally Hansen: Fairy Teal, Kiko Candy Split #002, Models Own: Chrome Green

The verdict:

Easy to work with
Gives you a good grip on your sponge
Looks cool with the glittery bits inside

The price – depending on the price on the extra sponge heads

  1. It gave your manicure a pretty effect for sure! I hope you feel up to a gradient in the future 'cause I would love to see how it works out!:)

  2. Beautiful mani :) I believe that this tool would be better than kitchen sponge I usually use ;-)

    1. Haha, yes maybe. But your kitchen sponge has room for more than one colour polish on it :D

  3. Nice manicure! I'm actually curious about that sponge.

  4. So interesting! It looks like a great product!
