Green Gradient Skittle - swatches

Today I'm killing two flies with one stroke! ;) Or should I say joining two challenges with one post? Today it's Green Wednesday AND I'm doing a Step Into Summer Challenge as well!

This is a skittle manicure were I've done a gradient on each nail too. The gradients are not horizontal, as they mostly are, but vertical. I thought it would be a fun take on it! They go from dark green to pale green and back again. A bit tricky to pull off but fun too!

Sorry for the picture spam but you really need to see this mani from different angels to appreciate it.

I used the following polishes: (from left to right)
China Glaze Holly-Day
Catrice Planet Tokyo
Essence I'm the Moss
Ciaté Mojito
Orly Coachella Dweller

How do you like this gradient skittle?
Have you tried doing gradients vertically?

This mani could be both Skittle and Gradient, but I chose Gradient for this one :)
This is what the other participants are doing!

  4. Underbart, ääälskar gröna gradienter. Kul att du valt att göra dem i enbart grönt också (uppenbarligen eftersom det ska passa till grön onsdag) men ändå. Jag har mest sett såna här i flerfärgat men detta gillade jag ännu mer :D

  5. Beautiful gradient manicure! I like all the shades you used, today I'm in the mood for Orly Coachella Dweller :-) or maybe I would use it for 3 nails and on 2 accent nails I would draw stripes with all the shades you used... just because I am not so good in making normal gradients, so I would make a "stripes gradient" :-)
