90s Grunge...neon gradient

Hey guys!
Hope you've all had a good week, mine's been stresssssful! Anywho this mani came about as I was feeling lazy and inspired by Spring's beauty trend of grunge, lazy and inspired?! I wanted to use my new Sparituals neon as it's so lovely for spring/summer/anytime. I used 3 coats of Barry M Nude and then I did one thin coat of Dreamsicle to just above half way, then whilst it was still wet I dipped a small brush into Nude and used it to both smudge the polish and make it paler. Then I went over dreamsicle up to where the smudge begins. Simple!
I got bored one night and drew on my middle finger and it didn't come off ha. Then I got the nail glue out and started sticking foil to my tips cos I thought it would look coooool but the glue just blobbed everywhere so it didn't work out and now it looks stupid but you can't really see it in the picture but I just thought I'd let you know ;).

Wearin' my new dress from Century 21 (best shoppppp) I like these nails but I'm ready to change them hahaha! Don't know what to do yet but I'll think of something I'm sure....I hope the nail glue comes off easily though, don't know why I used it.....

I'm suffering for the first time in years with really dry hands and I've peeled all my fingers, it didn't hurt until I reached the creases....I know it's bad but I couldn't stop myself :( now my fingers look gross and are kind of sore. Sorry for that, a bit creepy but relevant yes?

That's pretty cool. I like the foil. If the glue didn't soak through the polish it should come off fairly easily. ;) Good luck!!
