NOTD: Red, White & Blue Gradient

I'm not 100% sold on these nails, I did these a while ago and just found the pictures again but I did these while the Olympics were on and this was at the time, my take on a bit of a British theme but I don't know, it just didn't quite work for me. To do the gradient, I used Barry M's Denim Blue, which is a nice deep blue with a slight shimmer that dries to a matte finish, I then cut up a sponge (29p I think from Wilkinson's and lasts forever!) and painted a little bit of Model's Own Snow white onto the sponge and pressed about 1/2 way up the nail, don't press too hard or you lose the gradient effect! I then did the same with Barry M's Red nail polish, painted onto the sponge and then lightly pressed the sponge onto the tips of my nails and I got this effect, While I'm not entirely sold on this myself, part of me likes it, part of me doesn't, I am a fan of using a sponge for nail art, it makes such a difference, my favourite is a glitter gradient, it just looks awesome when it's done, I'll post some pics up soon of my latest glitter gradient!

What do you think of this?
