Summer Gradient Nails!

Hello everyone!  I know its not "technically" summer yet, but it sure feels like it.  Its definitely not spring here in north Florida, nor do these colors I used today look springy.  So, I am calling them summer nails!  While freehand nail art is not my forte, I am rather decent with gradients and water marbling.  Today I have a gradient.  For this gradient I used Sinful Colors Dream On, China Glaze Pool Party, and Sinful Colors Endless Blue.  I was looking for something to do with my nails the other day, and then just started picking up these colors and thought they would be great together, and boy they are!  I would like to say that I am a teeny bit disappointed with how the China Glaze Pool Party turned out in the photos though...it comes up much more pink than it actually is.  My bottle I am looking at right now as I am typing is clearly more orange influenced.  On the nail it is terrifically orange as well.  I wish you could see it!  As many bloggers say; the photos do the polish no justice.  I tried to change every setting I possibly could on my camera, but could not get it to pick up on the orange.  I was planning on putting up a web link to a photo of how it is supposed to look, but to my surprise it turns out this is just how this color looks in photos!  Either way, I still love the results!
I do have an small admission to make with these photos though.  For the first time ever, I have enhanced them a bit.  In an attempt to get the orange to come out more, I used the "Enhance" button on my husband's Ipad.  While it obviously did not make the orange come out, it did make the colors pop.  I liked the "turned up" look to the colors, so I kept it!  I do not plan on continuing this in the future, I prefer to publish photos that represent the true color of the polish.  That being said, please enjoy my photos!
