Recent Nail Designs, obsessed with gradients!

I haven't properly posted my NOTW for a while so I've put together quite a few that I have done recently! We have had gel at my work for a little while so I was playing around with it a bit there but the truth was I missed playing with my colours which I did not want to neglect!

Ever since I used the cling-wrap method here I've wanted to do it again . Sadly I have to have my nails short for work- I've always had long nails so it sucks for me. =/

 Chi-Chi Salon Formula in Material Girl, Sportsgirl Nail It! in Bionic.

I hadn't used a shatter polish for a while so I used my Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat polish in 06 Antiqued Gold over the top of Chi-Chi Salon Formula in Hissy Fit.
China Glaze Sweet Hook, Nicole by OPI Justin Bieber One less Lonely Girl.

My *first* go at gradient nails so it is a mess but I liked the colours together. You can still see my white base & there are gouges out of them and I had sponge sticking to my nails because I stupidly did not wet it first. I used China Glaze Pool Party, OPI Hot n Spicy & Ulta 3 Honolulu.

My Ombre nails which is different to a gradient as it does not fade subtly into another colour. I've already posted this Christmas mani. I used O.P.I's Goldeneye & Nicole by O.P.I Justin Bieber in OMB!. It was quite funny Christmas day we were lazing around that afternoon out in the sun when I bought out a nail polish to change my toes, and the ladies wanted theirs done so I brought out most of my collection (they were in awe over it hehe) and I ended up doing it for them too.

This was my NYE mani which I've again already posted but wanted it to be apart of this post, using OPI Koala Berry & OPI the living daylights. It didn't look as nice as how I thought it would!

 My 2nd proper attempt at gradient nails, using Australis Nail Colour in Bombshell, China Glaze Sweet Hook & Rimmel 60 seconds in Bonzai. Still not perfect!

 One of my fave mani's I have ever done, I think, my sunset gradient nails! I fell in loove with the contrast of the blue against the other colours. And the sparkles of course!

OPI Blue My Mind, OPI Too Hot Pink To Hold Em, OPI Hot n Spicy, China Glaze Yell-O-Neil, OPI China Glaze Snow Globe.

At the moment I have Australia day themed nails, which is coming up this sat 26th, on my toes I have the flag design & on my fingers, green & gold. Aussie Aussie Aussie!

Thanks for looking girls I hope you like my nail designs! I want to start posting my nail polish collection, one day anyway haha, would you prefer to see them in brands or by colour?
