Summer Challenge--Gardening!

Hi Readers!  When it comes to gardening I.DON'T.DO.IT. . . PERIOD!
LOL!  I seriously don't do it.  My sister Lisa used to do this with my mom and my mom still loves to do it but me and plants or flowers are a no go.  BUT I can do a beautiful flower like mani of my fingers SO I am more than happy with that!  I will say this is one of the most gorgeous mani's I've ever done and my little sister let me do this for her for my niece's graduation ceremony so it got a lot of wear this week!
This one is almost too lovely for words!
Here's a before stamping and after stamping on the gradient
This could possibly be one of my favorite mani's of all time.  The gradient is PERFECT!
Here's a picture of the polishes I used and how the sponge looked
These are part of the Jessica Paint The Town collection--they look like little paint cans! How adorbs!  Here are their names!
I created a whole The Making Of A Gradient album on my blog facebook page. If you'd like to see how I do it and try your hand at it look on http://www.facebook.com/DressedUpDigits
