St. Patty's gradient

I love green polish (have I mentioned that before? lol!) so of course I needed to do a mini St. Patrick's day nail art series.

Today I have a simple gradient. I didn't quite turn out how I hoped, but it still looks nice.

I started with 3 coats Finger Paints Paper Mache. Then I sponged on OPI Don't Mess With OPI. Here's where I messed up. Don't Mess with OPI isn't opaque enough and I just couldn't get the gradient to work out right.

Finally, I added Jessica 18K Gold Leaf on top. It's pretty sparse so I globbed a bit onto my palette (I use a cereal box or magazine since the glossiness slows drying), and then picked up the gold pieces with my brush to add on.
