I began by applying two/three (can't remember!) coats of Barry M's beautiful Lychee gelly. I then used my regularly-used pale pink by Glam to sponge a gradient from the middle of each nail to the tip. The sponge was way better and made the gradient much smoother. I also worked out that you need to do quite a lot of dabbed coats, each one getting higher up the nail to create a really good gradient. I finished off with a thick topcoat of Sally Hansen's Insta-dry. This smooths out the gradient even more and makes the nails super-shiny!
I'm really pleased with how these turned out! They look so smooth and the colours go nicely together. Again, sorry about quality of pics; from my phone again. & didn't crop the last pic - was resting my hand on top of this model bus on my windowsill to keep my hand steady for the photo and actually quite like the pic as a whole!!
