Sorry about the lobster hands in the pictures below... the lighting showed the holo better!
For this mani I started off with 2 coats of China Glaze Refresh Mint. I then did a gradient with Color Club Evolution. I do my gradients by painting both polishes directly onto the sponge in slightly overlapping stripes. See this tutorial by Colette of SimpleLittlePleasures. I did 3 layers of sponging using this method.
I really like monochromatic gradients and I like the way this one turned out! I also love the way Fairy Dust looks over light blues... actually it looks good on pretty much anything!
I don't want summer to end! I'm still obsessed with gradients and pastels!
