Gelish Oocha Coocha Gradient w/Stamp 2

My first gradient! I tried gradients a few times unsuccessfully because I was using a sponge that was too dense. I saw some baby bath sponges at the dollar store yesterday and decided to give them a shot and they worked well. I felt bad for ripping the little ducky shaped sponge into itty bitty(…)
