Deep green gradient ft. OPI Live and Let Die

Here's another polish from the Skyfall minis set I received from Sarah. OPI Live and Let Die is a super blackened deep, deep green with very fine flecks of gold and green shimmer. I paired it in a gradient mani with foresty-green Essie Going Incognito to lighten the look. I know the whole thing basically looks black, but wait for it...

Throw in some bright sunlight and it's so pretty! I loved this mani under very bright light. My indoor/artificial light photos were really not doing this gradient justice, but some sunlight streaming through bf's huge bedroom window prompted me to take a few quick photos. It was unplanned and a few days after doing it, hence the tipwear.

Both greens come off a little blue in the natural light photos; in reality they are very much deep, true greens and the mani overall is quite dark like the first image. The gradient was created very simply by dabbing Live and Let Die on a base of Going Incognito with a makeup sponge.

Have you ever tried a gradient nail before? What's your favourite way to create it?
