Summery 3 tone gradient NOTD

I saw a beautiful gradient on Instagram and had to copy it. I drew some patterns over it though, being me. 

Isn't it a beaut? Go and check out @amyytran for some more gorgeous designs :)
How she makes her gradients so perfect, I don't know!

I began with two layers over a base coat of Models Own Lemon Meringue. 

Then, using a sponge, I dabbed on layers of  more Models Own Lemon Meringue along with Peaches & Cream and Soda Pop Pink. 

Quickly using a top coat, I smoothed out the polish which also helps to blend it more. I wish I used a more neon pink so get a more similar effect...

Here's a water droplet shot from my shower ;)

I drew on these designs, and I am not happy with them. My black striper is a little thick (I've got thinner on the way) so it was dragging a bit too much. 

I also decided I really hated the dolphins and cocktails so I redid these nails: 

You can see the gradient under the heart isn't as good as the others since I rushed it and the thumb is just meh. But oh well!

Love love and naillove!!
