Real quick- here are nails inspired by a book- The Girl Who Played With Fire by Stieg Larsson. Not really a gradient here- what I did was painted uneven stripes up from the bed of the nail in Maybelline Color Show Denim Dash which is a great matte blue with silver shimmers, then Sally Hansen Insta-Dry in Lightening, Sinful Colors Courtney Orange and Big Daddy, then Kleancolor Blood. Then I took a paintbrush and before the colors were dry I pulled the colors down to the base to achieve the flame look.
Underneath all the paint is a duo brown from Maybelline Color Show that they put together to go along with all the luster chrome collections such as China Glaze Bohemian Collection. Here's a look at it on it's own. Here it is in outdoor lighting,
where you can just barely seen the green shimmer,
and with the flash where the colors really come together. Love it.
