Gradient with circles

What's this? More nail art created with water decals

I'm actually really in love with this design, it just came together so beautifully.  I started with a white base and then sponged a gradient using Picture Polish Wisteria, Jade and Fairy Floss.  Once that was dry I applied some half circle water decals from the Born Pretty Store item #6211.

The key to making the design pop is to select colours from the water decals and compliment those in the gradient background.  You can completely change the look by choosing a gradient with yellow, green and pink instead.  I also cut up and mixed up the decals a bit, for example some of these designs come with the half circles separated by a gap of clear decal, I cut these to give me the flexibly to place each of the circles exactly where I wanted, rather than where the decal would have place it.
