Green polish comparison and notd

Sorry for the lack of postings. I've been busy tidying things up at work since I'm taking a few days off for my birthday/thanksgiving. I'm taking a short trip to Toronto, Canada. I've been there before but would love to hear any recs for places to eat/shop if anyone wants to share =)

Anyway, I've been meaning to post this reference pic comparing Illamasqua Milf to Essie Mint Candy Apple and Chanel Jade. The fourth color is Essie Lollipop.

I attempted to use this gradation lame liquid that I purchase on ages ago. You're suppose to dab it on the border between your 2 nail colors and then drag the brush down towards the base of your nail to produce a gradation. The liquid works ok, but it takes patience to dab on the right amount and make a quick enough brush motion to get a smooth effect. My ring finger ended up with a more prominent gradation than my other nails but it didn't stand out enough for me to re-do it =P
Instead of buying this liquid you could probably diy by using a brush and nail polish remover but I have not try this method.

I used Zoya in Gigi (pale pink with silver shimmer), layered a shimmery white polish from the face shop and did tips with Jill Stuart Secret diamond (from the anniversary set).
