Summer Challenge Day 7 - 'Sunshine' nail art manicure

Hello there :)

It's Summer Challenge Day so it's my second post of the day. The theme is Sunshine and I really like the result. I didn't want to paint sun or anything obvious like that so I combined two techniques - gradient colours and stamping. 

I've used China Glaze Sun-Kissed, Orange You Hot? and OPI The Color Of Minnie for the gradient base and Essence White stamping polish and BM plate RA-106 for the stamping.

These are the girls participating in the Summer challenge, Check out their blogs and see their interpretation of the 'Summer Sunrise' theme:
