What's Red and Black and White all over???

Hi Readers!  Wait---What??? Isn't it what's black and white and red all over??? Well not this mani!  Before I show you this beauty let me just say I think I have a problem.  Yes it's true, I'm pretty positive I am addicted to gradients.  I don't know if they have a 12 step program for it or not and even if they do I don't think I want to stop!  I know they craze these days does seem to be gradients and bless everyone's heart for figuring out how to do them BUT I've been doing them this way for awhile now lol!  Trust me Readers, the triangle makeup sponge with the polish painted on them directly while a damp is the way to go! Check out my latest obsession
Holy Shiz this is a thing of beauty!  No namby pamby pastel or neon gradient to see here--this is a deep, dark vampy gradient!
And you know I don't ever leave well enough alone so . . . 
Man I LOVE this one!
Really how cool is this???!!!
I had to finagle this one too readers.  The image I used to stamp with is BM209.  It's not a full image rather a half image.  I had to scrape half of it off the stamp each time before I transferred it onto my nails because I wanted it to fit on on the side of the nail and not half of the nail.  I really love how it turned out!
How are you feeling about gradients?  Are you doing them?  Are you loving them?  Hating them?  Is anyone else addicted to them????

Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you all have a fantastic day!

    1. So far I have no Layla's holos! I wonder if it's a good idea to latch onto a new addiction to break an addiction lol!
