Thankfully I can still smell cinnamon!

Hi Readers!  I'm showing you a mani I did awhile ago and totally forgot to blog about!  OMG how forgetful is that?  It's my profile pic on FB and I guess I thought I blogged it since I loved it so much lol!  I did jump up to smell some cinnamon and it thankfully I can still smell it.  I've been told if you can't it's a sign of Alzeimer's--not sure if this is true or not.  So after smelling cinnamon and then making cinnamon toast to eat here's the mani I'm finally remembering to show you!
This is another fantastic gradient mani I've come up with.  I was super happy with this one.  Here's a look at the gradient without the stamping
When I did this gradient I had specific stamping in mind.  I really wanted to use the faces on the Cheeky XL C plate.  I did some searching through some other plates and decided BM 221 fit the bill.  What impresses me most with myself is I had to double stamp my thumb and I lined it up perfectly!!!
What I love about this gradient is despite the fact I used 4 colors two of them merging created a gorgeous 5th color!  
They orange and dusty teal mixed together to make they purple--how cool is that???
I honestly never thought it would turn out this great!  This is up there with one of my all time fave manis!
Here's a picture of the polishes I used and the pic of how the sponge gradient looked
This is what I used from left to right, WetnWild Sunny Side Up, OPI OPI On Collin's Ave, Finger Paints Vintage Velvet and China Glaze Shower Together.  I love the purple that was created with OPI On Collin's Ave and Vintage Velvet mixed together!
