Here is my first try at gradient nails using the layering method. This looked much better in real life than in the pics. Macro picks up all the imperfections :| The mani did not look so patchy IRL. The base is two coats of Catrice-Plum Play with Me, which I layered with BB Couture-Horened Devil. I wasn't too happy with my choice of colour combination, so I consider this a fail. But I'll give gradient nails another try later.
