Nail Crazies Unite! - "Gold"

I joined a nail art group on Facebook called Nail Crazies Unite that does weekly nail art challenges!  Here's the line-up for March:


I wasn't sure what I wanted to do for this week's theme.  I had thought maybe I'd paint pots of gold, or make it look like gold coins all over my nails.  I ended up doing something much, much simpler, partly because I ran out of time, and partly because I honestly need to work on basic techniques more and get stronger at them.  Here is my simple design:




I used "Gobble Me Up" by Ice Polish (press sample from Thanksgiving) as the base, and then I used "Auld Lang Syne" by Above the Curve as a glitter gradient starting at the tips and lessening towards the cuticles.  These suckers were so SPARKLAY in the direct sunlight - it was awesome!!  Definitely perfect for the "gold" theme.  I'm pretty happy with how it turned out - my glitter gradients are getting better :)

Here are some more designs from the other members of this group!!  Hope you all enjoy the rest of your weekend - don't forget about the "Spring Forward" time change nonsense today! :P
