There should probably be a monument erected in Sammy's honor, because her gradient tutorial has proved to be the easiest, most consistent gradient tutorial I've tried, and the results absolutely speak for themselves.
I'm so pleased with mine! I used Caribbean (Savina) and Plum Truffle (CND) for my gradient. I really wanted to add something as a great topper, so I went with Asbestos (Windestine). It's one of my favorite glitters. I love that the glitters are all small and all the same size and color. I'll be getting a few back up bottles as soon as they come out, especially with the unbelievably professional service provided by Freda.
Thank you both for a very happy pair of hands tonight!
