The Big Blue: Summer Fun Challenge

My first real gradient! I'd been putting this off for so long because it looked difficult. I was so wrong! I followed Sammy from The Nailasaurus' awesome tutorial and it went even better than I anticipated. I will definitely be trying this again soon!

It was hard, though, to decide on this in the first place! Today's theme is "The Big Blue," and I've been inspired by the ocean a number of times before (with Hokusai, colour, and texture), so to come up with a new interpretation was a bit of a challenge. I decided on this gradient, which goes from a more Caribbean ocean shade, to the more-familiar Atlantic's deep blue.

On a base of Sinful Colors Aqua, I sponged a gradient of Orly Stone Cold and Julep Megan, and added some glitter "bubbles" by dabbing a bit of Sinful Colors Nail Junkie on the accent nail.
