Have you tried Sammy at The Nailasaurus's gradient method? It's really easy & the results are much smoother compared to applying one color at a time.
Yep thats what I usually do, was rushed off my feet so just turned out a disaster! :P
I was so busy today too, just literally whacked the colours on, took the pictures, hit publish, and back to work again! I like yours x
