That time I wanted a discreet colour, but I knew I would get bored quickly, so I thought adding a twist of colour, and I still had to try this new Essence...
(outdoor daylight, a little washed out...)
Characters: Mavala "Velvet", always liked this rosy-browny-nude, I think it looks good with my skintone (you can notice the usage level :D ) and Essence "Viva La Green", which is a bright pastel green, not fluo, but so so bright - the ideal partner for the calm "Velvet" :>
I must admit it took me a little patience to achieve this result, but I think I did a good job, since that I used two really different colours, don't you think?
I applied two (or three? Damn!) coats, then I started sponging the green on tips, just like a french manicure: I needed several steps, but in the end I succeded in melting the two colours.

Look at the whole hands shot, don't know why, but I really really LOVED this combo!

This time too I topped all with Essence Better Than Gel Nails top coat, it helps a lot mixing colours when you do gradients.
Argh, too many pics, I know, this is what happens when you like something :P
Have a nice day/night/whatever and thanks for your attention ;¬)
