Gradient inspired by BRIGHT hair

Hey y'all!  So today I have a mani that I did inspired by hair.  A friend I grew up with recently bleached her hair(which ended up yellow) then the slapped some bright colors on it to form an ombre/gradient(whatever you want to call it).  It totally suits her personality and I immediately had to do some nails to match.

This is what I came up with.

 I originally tried to sponge the gradient on, but because some of the colors were too sheer it didn't work out well.  I had to brush them on.

I started out with a base of Ulta Sun-Sational, I thought it was the only yellow that I owned, but I found another AFTER I finished this.  Then I brushed on Deborah Lippmann Between The Sheets to cover about 3/4 of the nail.  Once that dried a little, I went a little further down and brushed on Deborah Lippmann Call Me Irresponsible.  Lastly, I finished it off with Revlon Royal on the tips. 

Now, her hair goes from that bleached yellow color(since her hair is naturally DARK) to pink to purple....and the ends look sorta purple-y blue.  That was the reason behind my color choices. 

I really love this.  It's bright and fun.  Be sure to check back tomorrow to see what I do to make it even better.
