Orange You Glad It's Tuesday??!!!

Hi Everyone!  Today I have a little happy accident to share with you all!  I had wanted to do an orange to red gradient with some polishes I haven't done much and at first gradient them with a sponge was very hard as all three were jelly type finishes.  I finally figure out how to get them on my nail and I think the look is striking!  I had to make due with the best "light" I had

Here's a shot I took of this gorgeous gradient under the stove top.  This is Elevation Aconcagua and Jade Uau and Vermelho Surreal

Here's a shot with flash 
What's so awesome about it is the fact it almost doesn't look like a gradient!

I tried to sponge method this as I normally do and I was getting nothing but the holo pigment on my nails with no color left behind.  I had to think outside the box.  To get it to work I did 1 layer of Aconcagua then I painted the red Vermelho Surreal on the tips, where the two met together I did some short brush strokes with Uau then I went over the entire nail again with a very thin coat of Aconcagua--brilliant!

Here's some shots I took outside
It's really quite stunning
What I liked best about it and I honestly think it's the jelly type finish in all of them is even indoors this looked lovely  as you could really see the color of the polish and not a flat silvery look you so often get with holos indoors.

I love this one a lot! I don't know if I'm going to be able to take this baby off!

Stay tuned tomorrow to see whether or not I do LOL!

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