Gradient time! For my mother, again we have shiny, again.
With Essie She's Picture Perfect as the base, sponged with CND Gold Chrome and then China Glaze Blonde Bombshell just at the tips.
Essie She's Picture Perfect is a pretty purple, that has a slight pink shimmer in the bottle that doesn't so much show up on the nail. Dries darker than it looks like it should, but it comes out even prettier in my opinion.
