Holo blue gradient

You know how I said yesterday that I wanted to do more holo gradients in a multitude of colours, well I didn't muck around.  I did one straight away in pretty shades of blue.

The base for this gradient was China Glaze OMG, although it is silver, when placed next to blue polishes it really does end up looking like a very light blue.  The next colour I used was also from the China Glaze OMG collection, 2NITE.  2NITE is the gorgeous cornflower blue linear holo.  Next colour was OPI DS Glamour (yep I really pulled out the big guns for this mani!) Finally, the very tips had and even darker blue holo franken that I had created (and haven't even worn yet - let me know if you want to see it as a mani).


Again, the holo finishes don't really match between the super fine finish of the OMG polishes down to DS Glamour and my franken, but the rainbow shimmer is still there and I really love the final look


Sorry I pulled out a number of my HTF holo polishes for this mani, but it was these colours that were calling me as I was going through my swatch sticks to pick which colours went together.  Hmmmm, what colour combo gradient should I try next.  I could do gold through brown or pinks through to red, or lavender through to dark purple.  Damn I think I will just have to do them all. YAY for not sucking at gradient manis anymore!
