Sugared blue reciprocal gradient/ombre

A blue version of my first adventure with reciprocal gradients (the first one was magenta/purple!), but I couldn't keep myself from topping it with one of three Ozotic polishes that I bought on a whim when I heard that they were going to be discontinued. Obviously I had to buy whatever I could find left online.... must. buy. all. the. Ozotics.

This design is certainly not my creation. Some origins of the legendary reciprocal gradient are noted in my previous post on the same design, but using blues specifically, a combination of a few talented ladies come to mind: an ode to All Nails Everything and Nail Art by Chels (the most perfect blue gradients you've ever seen!), the Nail Polish Challenge's brilliant blue laser gradient nails, and m_a_tom and the Globe & Nail for true blue linear reciprocal designs!

Polishes used:
- Seche White
- Nails inc. 'Chelsea physic garden' (light blue)
- Nails inc. 'Baker street' (royal blue)
- Seche 'Wonderfully witty' (not pictured, woops; dark blue)
- Ozotic 'Sugar 903' (beautiful sugary topper!)

Obviously I have an obsession with blue gradients, specifically my Nails inc. and Seche dark blue polishes which are basically indispensable... even though I have several other shades of blue, none are as opaque and form as perfect as a gradient as these babies!
