Striped Gradient

Did a bit of a twist on the gradient look by adding stripes. To do this look, I started off with one coat of Avon's Orchid Splash and when that dried I added striping tape: one down the middle and two half way down on either side. I then did the sponge gradient technique over top of all the nail using Avon's Viva Pink and Borghese's Bianco White Tip. I then removed the striping tape and put on a coat of top coat adding the gems at the top middle and then put another layer of top coat on to help the gems stick and to smooth out the sponge gradient which finishes rather roughly.
