How Great Are Gradients?

I'm so glad that gradients are the in thing at the moment, better than Caviar Manicures (especially Ciate Caviar). I was feeling in the mood for some blue. 

I started with a milky/jelly white franken I made myself, but I'm sure something like OPI Don't touch my Tutu would work too. I then added a coat of Seche Vite and sponged on my white franken, then China Glaze Electric Beat, Zoya Breezi and at the tips Revlon Royal.

I went shopping with these nails, I have to say I got sooOOOOOooo many compliments about them. One girl asked if I was a nail technician after I told her I did it myself. I told her that's how easy it is, that an amateur like me can do it hahaha!

As you can see I am still having the problem with breaking on my corners. It's driving me insane! Just as one nail grows and squares off another one breaks and another until I'm forced to cull down the length on the rest. It won't ever happen to my pinkies, so they are much longer than the rest of my nails. I am currently using Sally Hanson Diamond Strength, which I feel has made a different. But maybe I'll try OPI Nail Envy, I've heard such good things about that. Anyone got any good suggestions?
