Grading the Neon

Hiya!  Another weekend bites the dust - welcome Monday.....It's a short week for me and then I'm off for a week - woot woot!!

Day 2 for The Lazy 15 challenge is gradient - not my favorite technique, but I decided to give it a go with my lovely neons!!  I'm continuously defying the rain by painting my nails in super duper bright neons - it's not really working, but it does make me smile!!

Can you see that I tried to do some white stamping over the gradient?!  Yah, me neither, so I pulled out the black stamping polish!

  1. It looks good! Even before the houndstooth it looked cool, sort of crackled. I wondered how you did it, because it's like the paint broke somehow.

  2. I can see the white if I look close! I'm giving you a clap at the stamping job. (not 'giving you the clap' but clapping my hands together for a job well done.
