Graduated Hologram Manicure - Frankenpolish, China Glaze IDK & China Glaze LOL

I had on my manicure with the Frankenpolish holo I created (mwuhahahah!  Ahem, oh dear thats quite enough of that, I shall have to aquire an igor if that goes on, and they're very expensive, Terry Pratchett said so!)

Right then, as I said I had on my lovely creation but, I was bored and decided to do something more with my mani.  I decided that since I had China Glaze IDK and China Glaze LOL sat there looking at me, I would try a graduated manicure.  It was a bit trial and error, and with only an old washing up sponge and a stipple brush at my disposal (both of them quite worn) I wasn't expecting it to look great if I'm honest, so with a bottle of remover on standby off I went.  I have to say though, I am rather pleased with the effect, and a graduated holo is just perfect for a sunny afternoon I think.  With it being holo I think it was a bit more forgiving of my less than steady technique too, which can only be a bonus.  Pics or it didn't happen, right?  OK, here they are, I hope you like it.

Thanks for the lovely comments, it was my first graduated mani and I think I'll be experimenting with more in the future. Believe me I'm a clumsy thing so if I can do it, anyone can :)
