31DC2012: Day 10 Gradient Nails

So I don’t know if you heard, but gradients are kind of a big deal around here! Since I popped my gradient cherry, I just can’t get enough of the things. I think this might be my favourite colour combination yet. These were just the two polishes within reaching distance at the time but they work together perfectly together and this is one of my favourite combos to date.
Don’t forget to pop over to Cris and Rie‘s blogs to see their gradients today!

I used Sally Hansen Ion as my base colour. Before I started on the gradient I applied Liquid Pallisade* around my nails to prevent too much mess. I created the gradient using NYC Water Street Blue, following this tutorial. I finished it off with two coats of Seche Vite to smooth it over.
