Dueling Gradients

Hi everyone!  This is the mani I created at the beginning of my vacation last week!  I really wanted something with a skittled look, that still incorporated a matching color scheme with a dash of nail art.

I started off with three coats of Emily de Molly It's Complicated on my thumb, index, and pinky fingers, and two coats of A England Princess Tears on my middle and index fingers.  

Using a wedge sponge, I created a gradient with A England Princess Tears and A England Lady of the Lake.  I knew I wanted an animal print, but I couldn't choose between leopard and zebra, so I realized that one good gradient deserves another!!

Using my striping brush and small dotting tool with Sinful Colors Black on Black, I added a zebra to leopard pattern on my pinky and ring fingers.  I finished with one coat of SV.

I am so happy with the end result!!  I love the way I ended up with a skittle looking mani, without using too many different polishes!!

I am so excited to see the holos pop in Princess Tears and Lady of the Lake at the beach!!

I hope you all enjoyed!!  Happy Painting!

Colors: Emily de Molly It's Complicated, A England Princess Tears & Lady of the Lake, Sinful Colors Black on Black
