Spring Gradient: Pink & Lavender Pastels!

As promised, here is my pastel gradient!

I started with two coats of Milani's high speed fast dry Pink Express.  Once that was dry, I followed this tutorial by the Nailasaurus to achieve the gradient look.  Two two colors in the gradient are Milani Pink Express and Confetti 071 Belle of the Ball.  I topped it off with two coats of NYC extra shiny top coat to smooth out the bumpiness created by the nail sponge. Unfortunately, I am starting to notice all of the bubbles this top coat creates - I think it's time to switch brands. Any suggestions?

Here are some swatches of my base color:

And here are some more pictures of the finished product!

Have a wonderful day! :-)

What should my next gradient be? Leave suggestions in the comments section please!
