Gradient Nails!!

Good morning! Today I read on an friend's FB status: "When was the last time you did something for the first time." And I thought "now". Since my nails had grown long and though I am dying to try out one of the full nail designs from BM, I thought they might still fall short. So I decided  to try out gradient nails that I have seen on you tube and other blogs.
I used three colours in different shades of pink and one in magenta; applied using a piece of makeup sponge.
Started dabbing the lightest pink on one third of my nail and followed the same with darker ones. The third pink though I had to dab twice as it wasn't opaque enough. Lastly followed by magenta.
Finally I stamped the ring and thumb with butterfly on BM 222 in Konad special black and topped it of with a glitter top coat. Though this is my first trial using the sponge technique and I was very skeptical that it wouldn't come out neat...I must say I am quite happy with the result. What do you think?

Do leave your feedback and comments.
