Gradient and a bow for rebeccalikesnails

Rebecca over at rebecca likes nails is hosting a nail art contest. The theme is her favourite things: gradients, animal print, bows, dots, and Hello Kitty... The mani has to include at least one of these ideas. 

Since I'm not a fan of Hello Kitty, that narrowed it down slightly... I already made a dotting mani for the contest at Chalkboardnails back in February... and I have done animal prints on several occasions. Gradients is something I have been meaning to do for a while now and I have only tried bows once but they have not been featured on my blog.... So here it is, my gradient and bow mani for rebecca likes nails. 

Gosh Blue Balloon as the base with Orly Shine on Crazy Diamond. 
Sally Hansen Insta Dri Whirlwind White as the base on the accent nail. 
For the gradient I used H&M Blue, Gosh Blue Balloon, & Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Blue-Away.
The bow is Sally Hansen Insta Dri Whirlwind White, and Finger Paints Black expressionism. 
Details are with L.A.Colors Nail Art Deco in White and Black.
Topped it all off with inm Out the Door fast drying top coat.
