Here I Go Again On My Own

...going down the gradient road I don't really knoooow! heheh

Hello lovelies! I know what you're thinking, I know - Friday was yesterday and I'm posting this one late, but better late than never ;)

This whole gradient story may make me seem like one who nurtures obssessions to a rather unhealthy point, but... I will achieve perfection! hahaha ;)

And thanks to lovely bloggers, like Maria and Martha (awesome, awesome bloggers), who don't fail to comment back and have given me their best advice and sweet motivation, I will find my way!

So, without making you wait any further, here we go!

Now, what you think of that? Are my gradients getting better or is it just my imagination? ;)
Sorry for the wonky stripes on my ring finger but I didn't want to use any tape, I was feeling very free-handventurous :)) hehe

And now, onto details:
I used Purple Professional No.55 as a base colour, except for my ring finger and my thumb, where I used Purple Professional No.7.
I then sponged away the gradient using the opposite colour for each nail (you'll see my thumb in a minute) and added the stripes on my ring finger instead of doing a gradient.

There's my thumb, following the opposite colour combination.
Oh, and I also added three square rhinestones to my middle finger, just because I was feeling rather happy with the whole gradient session, round 152648 ;)

What do you think? I know I'm not the Queen of Gradients (yet :p) but will this count as well done? 
Do let me know in the comments below and don't mind about being kind or nice, just go ahead and be honest! ;)

Hugs & Kissies,
