Oh So Bright



I used four different colors here – peachy-orange, yellow, darker orange and bright red

First I painted my entire nail with the peachy-orange tone and then I sponged on the others.

I tried to achieve the from lighter to darker effect, but it didn’t turn out as gradient as I wanted.

Nevertheless, I like this mani. The colors are very bright and perfect for the summer.

And just my luck - the next day I broke a chip off my thumb nail, but luckily I took the pics before it happened. :D

Love it! Sponging generally hates me but this makes me want to try again :)

Oh so pretty! Last time I tried sponging and IT didn't go as desired, it was all messy and I was very disappointed but I am sure willing to trying it again :)
I seriously need a yellow polish in my collection.
