My inspiration came from Instagram where I'd seen someone using a stamping plate to put pretty gradient patterns over a pale background. I thought I'd give it a go with the fruit theme.I started with Barry M's Coconut as my base colour. It's a nice cream so slightly less bright that using a full on white. I'm nearly at the end of the bottle now so it was a bit of a challenge!
For the gradients I wanted something really bright so had a root through some of my Barry M's and Nails Inc's, I'm pleased to say they stamped very well. I tried to get a bit of a blend by moving the scraper slightly from one side to the other, while using it for a few strokes rather than just one, to remove the excess polish from the stamping plate. This meant that the colours could blend/mix a little in the middle. I got better at it as I went so you can see there is a bit of variety in gradient quality here! Below is the final result with no top coat.
