Pink to white gradient with contrast ruffian border

This week's weekly nail art challenge (co-hosted by Kristin of Lacquerstyle and Tracey of @missbellatracey on Instagram) is 'ruffian' nails (i.e., a border cuticle line) and the theme is contrast. This is probably one of the simplest gradients I have ever done (there is only ONE GRADIENT PER NAIL?!), I guess I had a fever or something. In any case they are sure to catch someone's eye with that extra ruffian touch, and think about all the colour possibilities you could use instead of pink!
