Gradient Nails

A trend I've been seeing a lot of recently, and last's night ENDLESS Big Brother final provided the perfect backdrop for a little experiement.

Take 5 similar shades of polish:
L-R: Barry M 'Navy', Models Own 'Blue Gem', H&M 'Blue My Mind', Rimmel 'Sky High', Barry M 'Pure Turquoise'

Then, apply!  I chose to paint in colour order, from light to dark on one hand and dark to light on the other (so it's all opposite apart from the middle finger).

I chose all creme finishes, althought the Barry M Navy has a very slight shimmer to it.  In this photo the two lightest colours look the same but they're different enough to notice.

Voila! Gradient nails!  Let me know what you think and what other colour combos I should try!
