Who ever said purple and grey don't go together?!

So this was another 'messing around' mani, playing with different colors to see how they look together. I had the idea to do a gradient in two colors that don't seem to be a common combo: purple and grey. Then I decided to add pink and black also. So I used Kleancolor Pastel Pink, Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac, L'Oreal Greycian Goddess, and a Petites' black:

I actually really love the gradient these made!

Then, for some reason, I decided it needed a little something else. So I added some gold butterflies that I've had for a year and never used; however, it wasn't until I was about 80% of the way done applying them that I realized I was putting them on upside down! =P Oops!

Oh well, the tiny antennas on them wouldn't stick down, and since they're made of some sort of thin metal, they kept poking and scratching me, and needless to say, didn't survive very long.

Though a beautiful gradient, this was a short-lived mani. I need to try it out again, but spend more time on it, make it less sloppy and thick, and definitely leave the butterflies out!

What are your favorite colors to create gradients with?

Buenos días. =)
