Models Own Week: Ice Neons Vertical Rainbow Gradient

It's Day 5 of Models Own Week!  I've been meaning to do a gradient mani with the Models Own Ice Neon Collection for ages so this seemed like a good opportunity.  I do wish I could capture just how incredibly neon these polishes are in daylight - they are so awesome - but in photos they just don't seem to have the same impact.

To do these, I painted a base of Models Own Snow White to make the neons pop.  I then used the make up sponge method (there's a tutorial here I did) to apply the neons - I wanted a rainbow effect but the green/purple nail didn't really work!  What I'm looking for is a proper neon blue polish, but I haven't found one yet.  In hindsight these probably would have looked good with some sort of black nail art over the top.  Ah, there's always a next time, right?
