Essie Week: Gradient Nails with Bikini So Teeny and In the Cab-ana

The fifth and final day of Essie Week has arrived - and better late than never right?  It's been a busy day - I had to get this little gradient mani done before my day began so it is not my finest work, I have to say!  [I did go into Lush today to buy myself some Lemony Flutter cuticle butter as I've read about it everywhere and the Lush lady was very complimentary about my nails, which was sweet.  On a side note about the Lemony Flutter, I've only used it once so far but I love it.  It moisturised my cuticles immediately - and they'd taken a fair battering this morning after the post-sponging acetone clean up].  I started with a base of Models Own Snow White (because that's my only white polish), then used a make up sponge to do the gradient with Essie Bikini So Teeny and Essie In the Cab-ana (the latter of which still is probably my favourite polish of the summer).  (You can see my gradient tutorial here).
