31 Day Challenge ~ Day 10: Gradient

   Today's Challenge is: GRADIENT!

I didn't have sponges with me (which is how I've learned to do gradients) so I decided to use a stamping technique for my gradient!

For this look, I first painted my nails white (this makes the neon colours look more vibrant!) Then I used the image plate 
BM-319 to stamp the neon gradient.
For the gradient, I used an assortment of bright colours, Color Club neons, OPI ~ Fly and Orly ~ Frolic. I lined up the bottles in a row, pink, yellow, green, blue, purple. Then I unscrewed all the lids so I'd be able to work quickly. 

On the image plate, I put a drop of each colour of polish beside each other and slightly overlapping. Once there was a drop of each colour, I scraped the polish across the image once, then once again to help the colours blend, and voila! You can see on the pinky I scraped too many times and the colours mixed too much and became muddy. It really is quite easy once you get the hang of it! 
Check back tomorrow for Day 11: Polka Dots =)
