Artsy Wednesday - Sponging

Hello again :-) Today's Artsy Wednesday theme is Sponging technique! I did try this two times, and stuck with my original shimmer sponging gradient instead of the sunrise gradient (which also looked cool but I need to perfect a bit more!) So for today I used an exisiting mani; OPI - Plugged In Plum which I had been wearing for 2 days now, so I decided to use OPI - It's My Year and OPI - DS Bronze (the name has fallen off the bottle and it's a fairly old DS colour..oops!) I sponged using an ordinary make up sponge and painting on It's My Year on the top and DS Bronze below and repeated sponging if necessary. It wasn't too bad, it looked much better in person!

Sorry about all the glitter on the sides of my nails, it was really hard to get off, even with acetone!
Don't forget to check out the other lovely ladies who participated in today's theme! I bet there will be some really awesome ones!!

    I love this combination. I have trouble with cleaning up glitter and shimmers too! I find I just end up spreading it around on my cuticles lol!
