3 tone gradient NOTD

Still loving the gradient nails, I decided to try a blue to lilac to pink design. 

I started off with a couple layers of Blue Moon by Barry M as a base. 

I think I used three layers in total to achieve desired opacity. 

I then sponged all three colours onto the nail. I had to do this two or three times on each nail to get the gradient as gradual as I like it and the opacity desired. 

For the lilac, I stuck with OPI Rumple's Wiggin and for the pink I chose OPI Japanese Rose Garden. 

I then decided I needed some sparkle so I used a light layer of Nails Inc Special Effects Holographic Top Coat. 

This stuff is beautiful. Turns any polish holographic! 

I took a couple blurred shots to show off the glitz:

I had these plain for a day or two but then I got bored so I used a black striper to draw in some details. 

Cute stripe tips, a bubble heart, bows, mini hearts and stars. 

And then I took this picture to show off my new bunny ring ^^ (I got it from Etsy)

My nails came off... LOL! 
(It's literally just the polish but they come off so perfectly. I think its a combination of the base and top coat I've been using lately)

What do you think? Plain or patterns??

Love love and naillove!!
