Gradient + Flakies

I started with two coats of Avon Lime Splatter (a light mint green color). Using the sponge method, I did a gradient with the Avon polish as well as Spoiled Visually Slimming (a black polish). I added one coat of Nfu-Oh 056 over the entire nail. I love how the flakies shift from green to blue!

Ohhh this is so pretty Amy! I've been wanting to do a gradient with flakies and you just reminded me of that desire. Also you picked a nice color combo :) Kisses***

This is really pretty - good call to play with these shades. I agree the shift from blue to green is really pretty from this Nfu-Oh - I almost bought this Nfu-Oh and then double checked my stash which I am trying hard now to do and not end up with so many dup or really similar shades. I found I had a FingerPaints flakie that did this same blue to green and back flakie. I don't have any Avon polishes but I have a couple greens I think I am going to try this look with- after all this is the yr of emerald green! it makes me feel way better about sporting shades of green that otherwise I might only pull out to wear for holiday and St. Patty's day.

I love the combination of colors! The flakes remind me of green lizard scales!

This is unreal! Gradient AND flakies? I could imagine this being what a glam pterodactyl's wings would look like :D
