As Sweet As Sugar!

Hi everyone!!  Happy Friday!  Was this the longest week ever, or what?!
I wanted to do something super fun and colorful today!  (I'm in such a summery mood!!!)

I started off with two coats of Candeo Colors Jellybean.  
It's a soft yellow creme with multi color micro and hex glitters.

To be honest, I was a little skeptical on how it's finish would turn out when I opened the bottle.  I was worried it might be a little bumpy due to all of the glitters, but I was totally wrong!!!!  It went on super smooth and easy, and I didn't have to work to fish out the hexes either!!!  It's amazing!  
I followed it with a coat of SV, since I would be stamping

To create a multi colored full nail stamp, with a gradient effect, here's what I did:
I used my MLS301 (Fauxnad)plate, which is a dupe of the super hard to find Konad Q1.  The only difference is the addition of the little candies on the right.

I applied Konad Special Red to the top half of the image, and Konad Special Blue to the bottom half of the image.

Then, with an orange stick, I swirled the polish around in the center to blend the red with the blue.

Next, I scraped the excess polish off going upward.  I then rolled my stamper across the image and applied it.  I finished with a coat of SV.

This is the look I was left with!!!  It's fun and colorful, but doesn't have an overly obvious color shift.

I really love this one!  I have been waiting for the perfect polish to come along to use this image with, and I knew that Jellybean was it!!!

I hope you all enjoy it!!  Have an awesome weekend!

Happy Painting!!!
