Gradients For Shelly *Very Pic Heavy*

If you haven't heard yet Shelly's Sassy Nails on Facebook has a contest every month. This month is gradient nails. (You have until 06/02/12 to enter). Well I've never done gradient nails, so I figured it will at the least be a learning experience :) After trying to find some inspiration on google images I found this picture: 
Isn't he cute? So I thought I'd go for something based on him :) I also found a couple other pics I really liked:
I love these!
These are so cute, I absolutely love them!
So the second isn't only a gradient its also amazing :) Anyhow enough yapping from me lol, onto the nails!
First, Naked Nails, the ladybugs stained :(
Its blurry on purpose to try to show how sparkly it is!

That is 2 coats of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails Blue Moon (you can see it here and here). Then I used an eyeshadow applicator sponge thing to sponge on Wet N Wild Bijou Blue, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blue Me Away and LA Colors dark blue (seen here). I wasn't originally going to use the LA Colors but you really couldn't tell the difference between the Bijou Blue and Blue Me Away. I also decided I wanted some glitter since my frog was shiny, so I threw a coat of Pure Ice Oh Baby on the top. I think I liked it so much I procrastinated finishing it lol. I guess I didn't want to take the chance of ruining it. But I'm glad I finished since I really love it :)

Well hello Righty :)

I decided this one definitely needs all these pics to show off lol. I used an Art Deco in black to do the spots. While it doesn't look exactly like my froggie that's ok with me :) As always thanks for stopping by :)
