Gradient 31DC2013 Mani

Wahoo I am officially a third way thru with the 31 Day Challenge. We covered all of the colors and next 10 days will be about patterns.  My mani today is a gradient done with jelly polish. I recently bought two of the jelly polishes from the China Glaze Sunsational Collection, and was inspired by Rebecca Loves Nails to use them in a gradient.

China Glaze: Shello-O and Keeping it Teal

After completing this gradient I realized that it looked exactly like a watermelon, and decided to stamp some watermelons :D

 Sinful Colors: Black on Black

Isn't this just adorable!? To bad it's not very summery anymore cause this would of been perfect for summer picnic nails. This was also one of my first time using jelly polish for nail art and I really enjoyed them.

Watermelons, by my Sister

My sister asked to do my nails while on vacation, she was very excited to use my tools and show me what she can do! We almost ended up doing lady bugs but she decided on Watermelons, which I have been wanting to do so it worked out well!
To start with my base colors for the accent nails was Nicole by OPI: Khloe had a Little Lam Lam, and for the other three nails base coat was China Glaze: Mediterranean Charm. For the lighter green rind part Zoya:  Wednesday. She applied the strips using the dotting tool on the accent fingers, and used a brush for the French Tip. Using my Nail art Duo Pen: Black, she drew on the seeds.
It was alot of fun showing her how to use the dotting pen and brush. She struggle to start but I think she got the hang of it on the third nail. I was happy to see her enjoy doing my nails but she still has alittle work to get to my level ;)
Don't you think these look pretty good!!
