China Glaze Gradient

Hi everybody!  I just love this manicure I did but I will warn you, the color in the pictures is a bit off.  For some reason my camera just would not capture the true colors.  I tried all sorts of different ways for lighting in my home made lightbox, I tried editing, etc. and I just couldn't get them close to true color.  In the pictures this looks more of a red and coral combination, but Sugar High and Snap My Dragon are actually pink!  I'm really sorry about that.

I love how the gradient turned out, but it needed something more! I decided to add a layer of China Glaze 'Fairy Dust'

I stamped over the gradient with BM314 using MASH Special Black Polish.  I placed them in different directions, and I really like how it turned out!

I love the thumb :D 


I took some pictures with my cell phone to see if that made a difference.  I would say this is closer to true color:

What a difference, right?!  I'm not sure what to do.  I dont know if I need to just adjust settings on my camera or what.
