Sunset in July

More 311 nails, lol.  This mani was inspired by the song, "Sunset in July", and the following image that I found on Google:   

I started with a sponge gradient.  Is anyone else this messy when doing gradients?  Lol.  

Gradient was created with Color Club 'Dress For The Parade", China Glaze "Papaya Punch", "Snap My Dragon", and "Grape Pop".  

I like how you can see the subtle shimmer :D 

I stamped with the following images:
Thumb & Middle Finger:  Cheeky Jumbo Plate 2, "Tropical Holiday" 
Index Finger:  Cheeky CH27  I chose the headphones because in part of the song, it says 'January, February, March into May.  And here's June with a tune, just to brighten my day.  Sun setting in July..'
Middle:  Cheeky Jumbo Plate 2, "Tropical Holiday"  & 311 water slide decal.  I'm not sure what happened here with the decal, it looks like it broke up a little bit, I'm thinking it may have slid around on my nail a little before I applied the top coat.  I chose the image from the Cheeky plate because it reminds me of a sunset, and the heart... just all ties in together with the song :D 
Ring:  Konad m29
Pinky:  Konad m26

What do you think?  Do you think it's too busy?  I thought it turned out pretty good and went along well with the theme of the song.  :)  Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I love how well the gradient looks.The stamping is very pretty too.

  2. That is so beautiful. I probably going out tomorrow and buying those colors (except for the Color club because it is so hard to find). Awesome, awesome gradient! You have a great artistic eye!

    1. Thank you! I wouldn't fret too much about the Color Club, I don't like the formula for that one anyway and honestly only use it for gradients. You can try Sally Hansen "Lightning" (InstaDry). Good luck and thank you so much :)
