Toxic Gradient & Vintage Roses

It has been so hot in NYC! this humidity and heat is ridiculous! it makes me not want to step out until the sun has gone down. I miss the spring breezy weather :(. Well since I am homeI have time to do my nails more often. Today I have another gradient I bet you guys are tired of seeing gradients all over the internet but I can't get enough of them! This time around as a Base color I used China Glaze-Four Leaf Clover from the Up & Away Collection this color is a Very Bright Green creme finish polish that In the bottle looks Green/Teal which makes it pretty hard to photograph! the color would not show up accurately! but in the pictures below it is pretty close and in real life it is just slightly brighter green and not teal at all The application was flawless I used 3 coats but could have gotten away with 2. For the gradient I used 3 colors CG Four Leaf Clover,Sinful Colors-Olympia & Sinful Colors-Snow me White. The white is not to visible because it just helped Olympia turn into more of a lime greenish color TOXIC. For the roses I used acrylic paints,a dotting tool and a small brush for the leaves.
