30 Day Challenge, Day 10: Gradient

Hi everyone! Today's prompt for the 30 Day Challenge was Gradient. I saw a gorgeous mani a few days ago that used pink and yellow (it was this tape mani from Enamel Girl) and I just adored how bright and cheerful the color combo was, so I decided to use those colors for my gradient. I started off with a base of China Glaze Lemon Fizz and then sponged a gradient using Lemon Fizz and KBShimmer Life Rose On. I thought the perfect way to accent this mani would be with these gorgeous pink butterfly stickers (Item BLE1390) that were sent to me for review by Born Pretty Store. I was absolutely in love with this mani and didn't want to take it off to do the next prompt! LOL...and now Dani and I have both done a pink and yellow gradient and we didn't even plan it that way!

There were pink and orange butterflies (as well as plain black ones) included in the package. There was a good variety of decals that you could mix and match and use for several manicures. These applied very easily and weren't prone to bend and get stuck together. So pretty for a spring manicure!
