FROOT Nails

This next manicure is inspired by the most recent single put out by Marina and the Diamonds.  It's called FROOT! and her new album drops December 12 in the UK and April 6 in the US.  Too excited.

I used a base color of OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection.  The gradient was done using many colors including:  Over & Over A-Gwen from the Gwen Stefani Collection, Juice Bar Hopping from the Go Neon or Go Nude Collection', I Just Can't Cope-acabana from the Brazil Collection, Green-wich Village from the Mod About Brights Collection, Ogre-the-Top Blue and Funky Dunky from the Shrek Collection, and Kiss Me I'm Brazilian also from the Brazil Collection.  
Everything was topped off using Cheeky and Konad plates containing little fruits on them stamped in black Konad stamping polish.  To add a little sparkle, I used Northern Lights from Out the Door.  Yay!

Leopard Nails!

Base colors in OPI's Alpine Snow from the Tuxedo Collection, Essie's Play Date, and In the Cab-Ana.
I used the blue and purple for the centers of the spots and Black Onyx to finish the spots off.  Finally got this down without a stamp! Woot!
