The DesignOne of my first ideas for this prompt was to do a gradient in sugar-spun form because I thought it would be adorable!! As far as the colors, I think Jacki's Lava Flow nails ((see them here)) made a serious impression on me yesterday because when it came time to choose colors I just felt like a red-hot red-to-yellow gradient would be perfect. I added the rhinestones because the 'plain' gradient nails were a little too smooth and glossy without them.
I really liked these nails and how the gradients went from dark at the base to lighter at my finger tips but DOH! I totally forgot how much reds can stain - especially when they get all over doing something like a gradient. Whoops!
The PolishesFor the gradient nails I painted a quick coat of white before sponging on Zoya Sooki (red), Deborah Lippmann Lara's Theme (orange), Sally Hansen Sun Kissed (lighter orange), and Color Club Almost Famous (yellow).
My sugar spun accent nail is a full 3 coats of a white polish, then the same red-to-yellow polishes 'spun' in the same order as the gradient nails. On one hand sugar spun nail art is amazing because it's SOOO easy, but then on the other hand I am impatient, so it can be hard to wait for it to be ready to 'spin' :p
