April Nail Art Challenge - Bright!

Today's April Nail Art Challenge is Bright! I love bright! Especially this time of year when everything is in bloom and just gorgeous. I wanted to do something really quick and simple, but still unique and fun. Since I'm out of town, I only brought a portion of my collection with me (that's still like 40 polishes, but let's not talk too much about that ;) ). I looked in my bin of polishes and pulled out all the bright colors I brought with me. Apparently, I inadvertently planned well for today because I happened to have quite a few oranges and corals to pick through. 

My thought process started with doing an ombre of orange to coral...and then I settled on using the sandwich bag method to create some water colored/marbled texture to the ombre. I think they turned out pretty fun! However, since I'm not on my personal computer, I don't have any editing software other than preview on a Mac (if you've ever used preview you will know my struggle!) so I can't add my normal watermark, hence the difference here. Please excuse my horrendous cuticles (I've been so busy I haven't been keeping up with my moisturizing!) and overall messiness D: I can't really believe I'm posting them as they are, but I unfortunately have a bunch of work and studying yet to do today and can't spend anymore time on nails :/ Be kind! I put together a tutorial for these here

I was thinking of possibly adding some sort of design over these if I find the time over the next day or so. What do you think?

As a little bonus, Fonzi and I had an impromptu photo shoot while I was taking my nail photos...he looked EVERYWHERE but at his beloved mother ;)
 Happy Polishing ;)
