Sponging Gradient - Paint onto a makeup sponge: Swanky Silk, Rare & Radiant, Unpredictable, Deviantly Daring and Want My Bawdy. There is a single base coat on nails of Swanky Silk and then sponged on the gradient with Swanky Silk near the cuticle edge and all the colors down to Want My Bawdy on the tips. All colors are from China Glaze Bohemia collection - Aug 2012 release.
Holo gradient - hard to pick the right shades to pull this off - here the base color for this one is Layla Hologram Effect in Coral Glam, then I did the gradient with China Glaze OMG polishes BFF in the middle and QT on the tip. The strong holo effect from the Layla polish underneath gives these photos a very orange glow overall
