It's Gradient Friday

I have another gradient for you today!!!! I love how fun and funky this turned out! I started with three coats of Zoya Mitzi. I have to admit I hated its application. It applied streaky. After two coats, I didn't have full coverage because of the streaks. So I had to add a third--just to make it look even. I applied one coat of top coat because it didn't dry quite matte but yet satin. Nonetheless, I didn't like it. 



I used CND Dark Amethyst and The Nailasaurus' Gradient Nails Tutorial to achieve this gradient look. 



Of course, I couldn't stop there. I added one thick coat of KBShimmer Clown Puke using the dab method. I LOVE this polish! It is fun and funky!!!!  (I think Christy is working on setting up a new site at http://www.kbshimmer.com/). You can also visit her on Facebook!

Shame about Mitzi but you definitely turned this into an awesome mani! I love Clown Puke, it's an awesome glitter and the name is A+. :D

I'm loving this!! Reminiscent of a jelly belly bean! Maybe a mango/pear combo?? Hehe.

Totally love this!!! Reminiscent of a jelly belly bean. Can't think of the exact flavour but it's probably something like pear or mango!

This looks so cool! I tried using Mitzi and a dark purple to do a gradient awhile ago and it didn't turn out that great, but yours look so awesome! Must be the glitter! :)
