I decided upon using a pale orange base colour (Revlon's Peach Smoothie) then using 3 orange shades in a kind of gradient effect up my nail- starting with the darkest shade towards the base of my nail.

Notice a peach theme in the polish names?
|The messy aftermath- but you can see how I placed polish on to get tacky!|
I'm not sure the stringy effect came out quite as I'd hoped- it is a bit of a blobby mess in a few places, but I do really like it, and I'm very sure I'll be doing it again (I've seen some awesome rainbow ones!) What do you think?
Have you tried the stringy polish effect yet? (this seriously needs a real, proper name- stringy polish does not sound nice...) if so do you have any tips?
