My first gradient attempt

I think this came out pretty good for a first try! I've always liked the look of gradient manis, and I figured today was as good a day as any to attempt one. Before I try this again I'm going to pick up some Seche Vite to level the bumpiness that the sponging left on the nail.

I think my camera is dying. It won't focus on anything and it's driving me crazy. :(

  4. I'm really digging the gradient look right now as well. But I don't like the bumpiness to it. What sponge do you use? (I use cosmetic sponges, and I'm not liking the results. . .)
