Sweet Gradient Nails & Cake

pink red gradient cake with hearts
This time my nails inspired me to make a cake. I was wearing this pink gradient mani when I decided to make a cake for my husband (last Friday we celebrated our 5th wedding anniversary!). Well, why not try to make it a gradient cake? It's not an exact match to the nails (I only had red food colouring), but I like it muchos! ^^ For the nails I used three coats of Barry M - Bright Pink and Gamax - Rosa Shocking to make the gradient. Then I added one layer of JENsations - Be My Valentine. A great glitter topper with hot pink and light pink hexes and light pink hearts. I had to fish a little for the hearts, but other than that it's a nice polish to work with.
