25 Days of Christmas Challenge: Day 5 Gradient Nails

Happy Monday Everyone!  I am a little late in posting today, crazy day!
Let me start by saying that I am so happy with my gradient nails!  I was worried that the I would not achieve the right color but they look so festive and Christmas-y!!
I did take a lot of pictures of this design and I am trying to stop myself from overloading the post!  I just the colors and the way the design turned out!

The Colors!
Base Coat - China Glaze Glittering Garland
Sponge Color - Julep January
Glitter - China Glaze Twinkle Lights

Check out this green:

Isn't it pretty!?!?  It is a beautiful dark green polish with light green glitter.  This is 2 coats, could have been 1 but I messed up a couple fingers.
Yes, I used Julep January again. I am really glad I did because it shows so much darker on top of the green.  Most of my reds are dark and I don't think a dark red would've looked as nice.  I did sponge 2 coats to get the red to really stand out.  To add a little something, something to the design I applied 2 coats of Twinkle Lights just on the red.

And for the Christmas Tree Shot:
