Gradient Nails

Hi all!

Today I have gradient nails to show you.  So many beautiful gradients have been floating around the blogosphere lately and I decided to give it a go.  I used the tutorial written up by Sammy, aka the Nailasaurus.

Her tutorial is super easy and gives a gorgeous gradient!



To get this look I started with a base of China Glaze - Electric Beat, a polish I just recently picked up from the Electropop collection that came out earlier this year.  Then using the method linked above, I sponged on Orly - Frolic with a bit more Electric Beat.

 I felt I needed a bit more sparkle so I added a coat of Nicole by OPI - Make a Comet-Ment, which is pretty much the same thing as China Glaze Fairy Dust, very fine holo micro glitter.  It just gives it the right about of glitz :)
