Funny thing happened on the way to the Sunday Challenge

Hi Readers! Remember yesterday's post with the Sally Hansen prisms I used for our jewel theme? Well I had done a mani I really loved and intended to stamp over it BUT honestly I loved it too much to stamp over it!  Since I was trying a few things yesterday I decided to save this gem to show you today.  This is just a gradient and nothing else but sometimes simplicity is all you need.  It was my intention to do a duochrome gradient and then stamp over it using another duochrome BUT this was too lovely to do anything to.  My duochrome gradient is Sally Hansen prisms Amber Ruby and Scarlet Ruby and as with all duochromes they really come to life in both light and shade.  Up first is the shade
I love this gold to red look
I used a base of black first to help the duochromes find their inner beauty
It sort of matched the colors on my laptop case!
I really couldn't stop staring at how pretty it was
I'm impressed with how seamless the gradient is

Now for the light pics
A TOTALLY different look yet really almost the same!
So sparkly!
I think we are nuts as a whole to care more about our health than these non 3 Free beauties LOL!  
Dear Sally Hansen why can't you make something like this again??? WHY??!!

This was just WAY too lovely to stamp over. And you all know I don't say that very often!

Duochromes are my thing just like gradients--I can't live without 'em!

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


  1. I love how the colors have different "personalities" in the shade and light. Beautiful.

    1. My all time favorite thing about a duochrome it shines in both sun and shadow!!!

  2. Love Nail Prisms! Amber Ruby is one of my all-time faves!

  3. You always amaze me with your perfect gorgeous gradients.
